All medication, including ointment, sunscreen, bug spray, aspirins, dietary supplements, or individual special medical procedures will be administered to the child only with prior written permission from the parent. All medication must be in the original container. Prescription medication must have the pharmacy label indicating the physician’s name, instructions, and name and strength of the medication. This medicine will be given in accordance with those instructions. Parents are responsible for providing liquid measuring syringes or measuring spoons for administering medication. If using a syringe, please mark the appropriate amount. The center will maintain a written record of the time and amount given, who administered the medication, and the child receiving it for all medications.
If your child has a medical condition that requires the use of injection medications (epi-pen, insulin shots, seizure medications), families will be required to submit an emergency action plan signed by your child’s physician. Child care staff have annual training on how to administer medication, including injections.
