Education (EDN) CHAPTER 16, TITLE 1, ARTICLE 19
* § 919. On-site nebulizers. 1. The board of education or trustees of
the school district responsible for providing health services in a
school, or the board of cooperative educational services in the case of
programs under its jurisdiction, shall make a nebulizer available
on-site in every public and private school building in which full or
part time nurse services are provided. Nebulizers in such school
buildings shall be made available to allow reasonable access to all
public and private school students with a patient specific order, who
require inhaled medications administered by a nebulizer, provided,
however, that nebulizers shall be administered by a school nurse or
physician pursuant to the student's patient specific order. Every
nebulizer shall be maintained in working order by the school district or
board of cooperative educational services that provides school health
services to the school building where the nebulizer is located.

2. The commissioner shall be authorized to promulgate regulations for
the implementation of this section.

* NB Not effective pursuant to confirmation from DOB stating no
funding has been provided for nebulizers (see ch. 672/2007).
