School nurse: Sure, here's the special pill. I'm sorry about your headache but I can't give you an aspirin with your parents permission.
“... but I can’t give you an aspirin”.
So true. In fact, the school nurse cannot give out medication (even over the counter meds) without a doctor’s note. To give my own child some Tylenol or Excederin, I have to sign them out.. drive OFF of school grounds, give them the pill and drive them back (sign them in). Yet, this school can give out this type of medication without a parent’s okay AND without a doctor’s exam/script? Insanity!
