Food allergies are a reality in schools across the country. There are more individuals in schools today who have a food allergy. While some may not be severe, others may be life-threatening. These individuals may need a lifesaving epinephrine injection given to them immediately. What happens if a school nurse is not in the building? This is something which administrators, school nurses, and teachers must be aware of. They need to check into the law and who is allowed to give a child a dose of epinephrine if an emergency arises and the school nurse is not there.
