A Reminder from the Health Office

Due to legal and policy regulations, annual doctor’s orders are required every school year for ANY medication to be administered from the Health Office.  We have recently had requests to give asthma inhalers before gym and we cannot do this unless we have orders.  The turn-around time for getting a faxed order back from a physician, PA or CNP is usually one or two days.  It is rare to get a faxed order back on the day it was requested.    

 

Students in 7th grade or above can self-carry over the counter medications such as Tylenol or Motrin if their parents sign a ‘Self-Administration Authorization’ form and it is on file in the Health Office.  Click here for a shortcut to the form.  Please refer to Lake Harriet’s Health Services website for more information.
