New medication administration policy
Updated: Jul 22, 2021
2019 saw the passage of a new Medication Administration policy for Medford Public Schools. The policy on the books, while perfectly legal, was quite outdated in both format and content.
The new policy clarifies much and also accounts for some changes to medication administration, such as inhalers, epi-pens, and experimental medications such as chemotherapy.
I chaired the Support Services Subcommittee and was proud of how everyone involved, parents, administrators, and staff, all recognized the importance of this policy being as perfect as possible and they committed significant time to getting it right.
