School Nurses Save Lives with Epinephrine Auto-Injectors
Date:2/27/2012

SILVER SPRING, Md., Feb. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Swift responses save lives when a student experiences an episode of anaphylaxis. As evidenced by incidents in Tennessee and Virginia this past month, having a registered school nurse on site plus an Emergency Care Plan is a life-saving combination.

The National Association of School Nurses (NASN) stresses the importance of awareness, preparedness and action in keeping students healthy, in school and ready to learn. NASN supports the need for a registered school nurse in the building all day, every day and the need for available epinephrine. School team collaboration is also crucial to saving lives. "Every school needs to have in place a Medical Emergency Response Team headed by an RN," said North Elementary Principal Vera Abbott-Young, site of a recent anaphylaxis success story. "Nurse Jennifer makes sure that all care plans for students are completed. She keeps a database of students having these plans and disseminates the information to the entire staff. Thus, because of the two yearly trainings for the entire school staff outlining the steps one must take when a child is experiencing life-threatening effects from a food allergy, Jennifer and her team helped to save the life of a child. No school should be without an RN on staff."

"We never want to see a child suffer – our message at moments like this is the need for a school nurse in the building all day, every day and the need for available epinephrine auto-injectors," said NASN President Linda Davis-Alldritt, MA, BSN, RN, FNASN, FASHA. "With the nurse, you get a professional who has the assessment skills to ascertain what is happening and the clinical skills to react in time and with the epinephrine; the nurse has the life-saving tool needed to respond
