If your child will require any prescription or non-prescription medicine at school, please contact School Health Services Personnel.
You will be required to follow the CISD Policy regarding the administration of medication at school. A few things to remember:
Canyon ISD takes the position that all licensed nurses are required to comply with the Board of Nurse Examiners (BON) rules and regulations. According to rule 217.11 (T) nurses will only accept those nursing assignments that take into consideration patient safety and that are commensurate with one’s own educational preparation, experience, knowledge and physical and emotional ability and according to rule 217.11 ( N ) will clarify any order or treatment regimen that the nurse has reason to believe is inaccurate, non-efficacious or contraindicated by consulting with the appropriate licensed practitioner and notifying the ordering practitioner when the nurse makes the decision not to administer the medication or treatment. The nurse has the authority to refuse to administer medication, which the nurse believes is not in the best interest of the patient per Rule 217.11 (1a,c). Further, the nurse has the duty to clarify and question any unclear order.
