COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The Ohio House has passed a bill that will make it much easier for schools to stock general-use supplies of epinephrine shots used to counter allergic reactions.
The bill was approved Wednesday by the House and now will go to the state Senate for consideration.
The action wouldn't force schools to stock epinephrine injectors. But it would make it easier for schools to stock the injectors by removing barriers such as cost.
Currently, parents who know their child has allergies can send epinephrine with their child to school. But it's illegal for school nurses to dispense doses to anyone else who might have an allergic reaction at school.
The bill outlines the training to be provided and the liability protection for the trained employees who administer the drug.
