Question for the network about School Trips and Student Medication
Every so often, we have requests from School Nurses who are after advice... This week the question is about School Trips Abroad:
Hi there, ...we have a school trip to the USA in a couple of weeks and we were wondering how other nurses manage students medications on trips abroad. Does the teacher take responsibility or does the student??? Students will be over 16yrs and will carry their own meds through customs but should they then hand them to the teacher to allocate or does it depend on individual student needs and meds???
Any help gratefully received!
