[IP] glucagon

This sounds familiar.  We went through the same thing with our school
nurse and ended up in a meeting with the school district superindent,
policy coordinator, principal and nurse.  My first suggestion would be to
look at your school policy and take it from there.  I was told the same
thing about the epi-pen, it was okay to use but not glucagon.  The policy
said no such thing.  The nurse was not able, under her license, to train
personell to adminster the glucagon, but I could if I had willing
volunteers.  The principal and super were very supportive once they saw
how easy the glucagon was to administer.  I say, fight it, and win.  We
found out that the school district didn't know their own policies and
things just had to be discussed and worked through to get to the end
result!  E-mail me privately if I can help!
