Care for Students with Chronic Conditions
Caring for students with chronic conditions may require additional protocols to ensure they are properly supported.
- Train and delegate staff to administer medications and other medical treatments ordered by authorized care providers, per Colorado Board of Nursing Chapter 13 - Rules and Regulations Regarding the Delegation of Nursing Tasks 3 CCR 716-1 and Colorado State Board of Education Rules for Administration of Medications 1 CCR 301-68
- Ensure safe medication storage, per CDPHE Rules and Regulations Governing Schools in the State of Colorado 6 CCR 1010-6 6.13 G.
- To implement Student Health Care Plans and 504 Plans, school staff should discuss the student's health and safety needs with parent/guardian and medical provider to identify how to meet the student needs safely.
- Students for different reasons may struggle with wearing a mask. Please consider planning with providers on how to support students' needs while maintaining health and safety protocols.
