“AN ACT CONCERNING THE ADMINISTRATION OF EPINEPHRINE TO SCHOOL CHILDREN IN AN EMERGENCY”

Big news! State Rep Kim Hunter Rose has submitted Proposed H.B. No. 5537 “AN ACT CONCERNING THE ADMINISTRATION OF EPINEPHRINE TO SCHOOL CHILDREN IN AN EMERGENCY.” The purpose of the Act is to to allow a school nurse to use an auto-injector to administer epinephrine to any student when necessary. We need to email all of the members of the public health committee and ask them to place this item on the agenda for a public hearing. The names of the members are below. Please email them at: first name.last name@cga.ct.gov

Thanks!

  1. I am a mom with a nut-allergic child, school nurses are allowed to administer auto- inject epi- pens. We supply these to the school and I have never been told that the nurse wouldn’t give it if needed.

    1. Holly- this is for kids that don’t have a prescription either because they’re not aware that they have an allergy because they haven’t had their first reaction yet, or because they don’t have their prescribed pen at school for some reason.

  2. Very nice write-up. I certainly appreciate this site. Keep writing!

  3. Slip your index finger between your heel bone
    and the shoes rear wall. You can review the articles
    here: and a second article:. Tubbs Snowshoes are great for hiking in the mountains in the snow.
