    and the CCMS The Education and Library Boards the CCMS and other employers have the primary responsibility for the safety and health of pupils It is essential that detailed guidance is issued by employing authorities to all schools clarifying the areas of responsibility for medicines together with the procedure to operate should there be a need for medication to be administered within a school Teachers Professional Duty Teachers have a professional duty to safeguard the health and safety of pupils when they are authorised to be on school premises and when they are engaged in authorised school activities elsewhere This does not imply a duty upon teachers personally to undertake the administration of medicines INTO recommends that teachers do not take the responsibility for administration of any medicine which if administered incorrectly or for any other reason could have a damaging effect on the child Children with Long Term Health Problems It is recognised that it is desirable for children with long term health problems eg asthma epilepsy and diabetes to be accommodated within a school in order that they can continue with their education If this is done it is necessary that proper and clearly understood arrangements for the administration of medicines are made Parents should be encouraged to provide the maximum support and assistance in helping the school accommodate the pupil This could include measures such a self administration where necessary and only after approval from a GP or parental suspension Teachers and Administration of Medicines in Schools 1 No teacher can be requested to administer medicine or drugs to a pupil Contact INTO Northern Office or your Northern Committee representative where there is any attempt to impose such a requirement 2 Principals should refuse to accept responsibility for the administration of medication to pupils where a the timing of its administration is critical to the health of the child or b some technical or medical knowledge and or training is required or c intimate contact with the pupil is necessary 3 Any teacher who is prepared to administer medicines should only do so under strictly controlled guidelines fully confident that the administration will be safe It is wise to limit this willingness to emergency situations only A teacher who does take responsibility for administering medicines takes on a heavy legal duty of care to discharge the responsibility correctly Every reasonable precaution must be taken Clear instructions about medicines requiring regular administration must be obtained and strictly followed In emergencies a teacher should do no more than is obviously necessary and appropriate to relieve extreme distress or prevent further and otherwise irreparable harm Qualified medical attention should be secured in emergencies at the earliest opportunity Again no teacher can be required to administer medicine This is a matter of individual choice and judgement Apart from the obvious distress to the teacher who makes a mistake that teacher would find her himself named in a legal claim for negligence Arrangements in School Whenever possible parents should be asked to
