[IPp] Re: state legislation

>>Allison Kane <email @ redacted states:
That's great that the diabetic student will have access to glucagon at all
times. However, when they are unconcious or seizing having access won't do
them any good, since they can't give it to themselves.
The legislation should have been for the schools to have one or more adults
on duty at all times that are trained to administer glucagon to a diabetic
student in an emergency.  Allison<<

I believe the legislation goes into more detail to address the need 
for someone designated to do the glucagon injection.  The guidelines 
must be based on those set by the ADA and they know how pointless it 
would be for a student to "just have access."  Remember, we are 
getting a condensed version of the actual legislation.
