APS Medication Policy

Albuquerque Public Schools has a Procedural Directive and medication policy that all School Nurses and Health Assistants and other school personnel must follow. This policy is used "...to ensure that students who require medication at school receive them in a safe and timely manner, according to their physician's orders and with maximum protection to all who are involved."

Students who take medication at school need to have a physician's order for their medication on file in the health room.This is whether the medication is carried by the student, self-administered by the student and supervised by the health assistant or administered by the nurse. APS medication forms can be picked up in the school health office at any time. If a form is not available for the physician during your visit the order can be written on a doctor’s prescription pad or stationary. The order must include the student's name, name of the medication, dose to be taken and the time of administration. This note can then be attached to the APS form at school and the form is then signed by the parent. The form can also be faxed to and from the physician's office. The medication must be in a prescription labeled container. Changes in the dosage of the medication require a new order.

At no time will a student be allowed to carry a medication classified as a controlled substance (Example: Ritalin, Dexedrine, Tylenol with Codeine).  The medication label cannot be used in place of a physician's written order. This is done for your child's protection as a mistake can be made when the prescription is filled.
