Administering Medication Policy
Any medication that a child needs must be clearly labelled with their full name and given in at registration. If medicine is to be administered by the child (e.g., asthma inhaler) the child is to keep it in their pocket or given into the Champ Leader of the session (if under 8 years old), so it is easily accessible at all times.
If the medication is to be administered by a Camp 4 Champs member of staff, a parent or carer must complete a Request to Administer Medication Form (which will be available at registration). Without this completed form, staff will not be able to administer any medication. Prescription medication will only be administered if the child’s full name is clearly printed on the packaging. A Medication Log Sheet will be kept and shared with the parent/carer at pick up time.
All medication, Request to Administer Medication form and Medication Log Sheet will be kept in the Medication Box
The policy will be reviewed a year after development and then every 12 months, or in the following circumstances:
- Changes in legislation and/or government guidance
- As a result of any other significant change or event.
