Re: [IP] School Regulations

Does the policy specify consequences for a child who boluses without 
nurse supervison?  Does the policy guarantee easy access to the nurse 
for the child, that is, are there enough nurses so that the child 
does not have to wait too long for the nurse to become available so 
they can bolus in a timely enough manner?  Is the nurse stationed 
near the cafeteria for meals and snacks?

What about glucagon injections?  Does the policy provide for those?
