The children in your care may be prescribed medications either for a short-term illness or for a chronic disease. During the time they are in your care, it may be necessary to administer medications for either infectious or chronic illnesses. Medication should be administered under the safest possible conditions to protect children. Parental permission, labeled medication and medical logs are necessary. You should discuss the procedures you will follow for administering medications with the parents prior to giving any medications. Before you administer medications, you should also be trained on how to do so.
