Medication Administration

Giving medication is a big responsibility; it is important for providers to be aware of their risk of liability. For licensing, it is only required to obtain written parental permission to give prescription and over-the-counter medication. In order to reduce the likelihood of a parent lawsuit, it is recommended for providers to do the following: obtain written permission and instructions for giving over-the-counter and prescription medication from a health care provider and the child's parent, follow safe practices and have liability insurance. The label of the prescription medication can serve as written permission and instructions from the health care provider.
