Arizona legislation is now in place to provide Arizona school districts access to emergency medications for life threatening reactions in the school setting. Amphitheater Public Schools Health Services Department now has stock EpiPens and stock Inhalers at every school site for use with students that exhibit anaphylaxis and/or respiratory distress.
Both medications can be used on students with either known or unknown life-threatening conditions.
Standing orders, procedures, and training is in place for all health care staff at each school. Parents will be notified when staff use any emergency medications for their students. These medications will allow our students to be safe from severe life threatening allergic reactions and respiratory distress.
