California Supreme Court Gives Go-Ahead to School Employees to Administer Insulin Shots

 

The California Supreme Court has ruled that school employees who are not licensed nurses may administer insulin shots and other medications to students.  

This is a decision in response to the American Diabetes Association appeal on a lower court ruling that allowed unlicensed but trained school employees to provide injections. CTA supported the California Nurses Association in a lawsuit against the state because trained medical personnel should be the ones to administer insulin and other medications.
