Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the School Code. Provides that when a student needs to receive any medication in school or during school activities, a medication management plan must be established if the parent or guardian of the student submits a signed request accompanied with sufficient proof of diagnosis of a condition or illness necessitating assistance with administering any medication to the student. Provides that the school principal and the parents or guardian must develop and agree on a plan. Provides that absent a full-time school nurse, the school principal must appoint, supervise, and coordinate the training of a designated health care aide to perform the tasks necessary to assist a student in accordance with the plan. Provides that a school must provide a one-page information sheet regarding a student's plan to each employee providing transportation for the student or supervising the student during a school-sponsored activity. Provides that a school district may not restrict the assignment of a student with a plan to a particular school on the basis that the school does not have a full-time nurse or a designated health care aide, nor may a school deny access to a student on the basis that the student requires a plan. Exempts the school and school employees from civil liability for conduct related to the care of a student in accordance with a plan, except for willful or wanton misconduct. Amends the Nurse Practice Act to allow persons to be employed as unlicensed assistive personnel in schools. In a Section concerning nursing delegation, provides that a school nurse, a registered professional nurse, or an advanced practice nurse may teach or train other persons in first aid, emergency care, or cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
