Student Health FormsThe following forms are used to assist in health planning for students. The nursing staff, educational team, and family need input and instructions from the health care provider. The forms must be completed and signed by the physician. Some forms require a parent/guardian signature as well. The medical packet will remain in effect for one school year; and a new set of documents are required each August prior to the start of school (or anytime there is a change). In the event that new orders are not received, parents have the right and responsibility to administer medications and/or perform special health procedures during the school day.
*Our school nurses are governed by the Georgia Nurse Practice Act and APS Policy JGCD – Medication, and they will only administer medication in accordance with written medical orders signed by a licensed physician, dentist, or podiatrist. APS nurses will not modify any dosage of medicine based solely on a request or recommendation by a parent or guardian. A parent or guardian seeking a dosage modification must provide the nurse with an appropriate medical order.
