BILL NUMBER:S2210 REVISED 2/27/13

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the education law, in relation to the
use of epinephrine by students

PURPOSE OF BILL: This bill would allow pupils who have been diagnosed
with severe food or other allergies to carry and use the prescribed
medication epinephrine and a device to self-administer epinephrine
during the school day and during school sponsored activities.

EFFECTS OF PRESENT LAW WHICH THIS BILL WOULD ALTER: Adds a new
section 921 to the Education Law

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: The education law is amended by
adding a new section 921 which allows students who have been diagnosed
by a physician or other authorized health care provider with a severe
food or other allergy to carry and use the prescribed medication
epinephrine and a device to self-administer epinephrine.

JUSTIFICATION: The-following information is taken from the American
Academy of Asthma, Allergy and Immunology position Statement on
Anaphylaxis in Schools: Life-threatening severe allergic reactions can
cause the condition Anaphylaxis which is a collection of symptoms
including breathing difficulties and a drop in blood pressure or
shock, which are potentially fatal. Common examples of potentially
life-threatening allergies are those to foods and stinging insects.
Life-threatening allergic reactions may also occur to medications or
latex rubber and in association with exercise. It is estimated that 1%
to 2% of the general population is at risk for anaphylaxis from food
allergies and insect. stings, with a lower reported prevalence for
drugs and latex. Asthmatic subjects are at particular risk,.
Approximately 50 anaphylactic deaths caused by insect stings and 100
food-related anaphylactic deaths are recognized each year in the U.S.

School personnel should develop a system of identifying children with
life-threatening allergies to prevent anaphylactic reactions, and they
should also be prepared to deal with those that occur despite
precautions. It is imperative that epinephrine be recognized as the
drug of choice and that all efforts are directed toward its immediate
use. Data clearly shows that fatalities more often occur a way from
home and are associated with either not using epinephrine or a delay
in the use of epinephrine treatment.

All school personnel should be aware of those students who have been
prescribed epinephrine. This information should be readily available
and reviewed by all personnel.

Staff members involved with the child's care should be instructed
about the potentially severe nature and proper treatment of the
allergic problem. This information should be reviewed with the
student's parents before each school year or special activities (e.g.,
school trips). Any questions and possible treatment strategies should
then be discussed with the parent, the child's physician, or both.

If prescribed, every student should have the epinephrine auto-injector
device clearly labeled with his or her name and classroom number.


School personnel should be instructed about the location of the
medication.

Accidental food ingestion can occur despite avoidance measures.
Treatment should be immediately available for these emergency
situations. Treatment protocols need to be prescribed by a physician,.
The school staff should have written instructions from the child's
physician and signed by the parents, providing easy to follow steps
for recognizing a reaction and administering medication. Several
federal laws protect the rights of disabled children, which include
those with life-threatening food allergies.

Epinephrine injection is available in a number of self-administration
delivery devices. There are no contraindications to the use of
epinephrine for a life-threatening allergic reaction. Epinephrine
should be kept in locations that are easily accessible and not in
locked cupboards or drawers. All staff members should know these
locations. Children old enough to self-administer epinephrine should
carry their own kits.

All students, regardless of whether they are capable of epinephrine
self-administration, will still require the help of others because the
severity of the reaction may hamper their attempts to inject
themselves. Adult supervision is mandatory.

All individuals entrusted with the care of children need to have
familiarity with basic first-aid and resuscitative techniques. This
should include additional formal training on how to use epinephrine
devices. A school-wide food allergy awareness program for the staff,
including an allergy emergency drill, should be developed to ensure
that everyone will know what to do if a reaction occurs.

PURPOSE OF BILL: This bill would allow pupils who have been diagnosed
with severe food or other allergies to carry and use the prescribed
medication epinephrine and a device to self-administer epinephrine
during the school day and during school sponsored activities.

EFFECTS OF PRESENT LAW WHICH THIS BILL WOULD ALTER: Adds a new
section 921 to the Education Law

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: New Section 921

1. a. School districts would allow pupils who have been diagnosed by a
physician with a severe food or other allergy to carry and use the
prescribed medication epinephrine and a device to self-administer
epinephrine, such as an epinephrine auto-injector, during the school
day and during school sponsored activities that occur after the
regular school day or outside of the school, with the written
permission of a physician or other duly authorized health care
provider, and parental consent, based on such physician's or
provider's determination that such pupil is subject to allergic
attacks severe enough to debilitate such pupil. A record of such
permission shall be maintained in the school office.

b. The district would prepare for EACH such student an emergency
action plan and a severe allergy treatment plan with the assistance of
the physician of the pupil. The Commissioner of Education, in
consultation with the Commissioner of Health, would establish
standards for the development of such plans.

2. The district would inform the parents of the pupil, in writing,
that the district and its employees are not liable as a result of any
injury arising from the self-administration of such medication by the
pupil. The parents would sign a statement acknowledging the district
was not liable.

3. Every school district would maintain an epinephrine auto-injector
in the school nurse's office or in a similar accessible location. The
commissioner would promulgate regulations for the use of a device to
administer epinephrine by the school nurse or other person authorized
by regulation. The regulations would require training for the school
nurse and require information be provided to teaching and other school
staff about students in the school who may suffer from severe
allergies and the potential consequences, the availability of
epinephrine, and the protocol to follow when a pupil experiences a
severe allergic reaction.
