Young children may be in child care for most of the day. During that time it may be necessary to administer medications to them for either infectious or chronic diseases. Medication should be administered under the safest possible conditions to protect children. Parental permission forms, labeled medication and medical logs are necessary. Licensing requirements should be followed in developing policies related to administration of medication. In child care settings, guidelines for administering medication are critical. Child care providers who administer medication should be trained based on licensing requirements.
