Bill authorizing school bus drivers to use epipens passes in Pennsylvania House

from The Express-Times

School bus drivers may become the new first responders. The Pennsylvania House of Representatives recently approved the Student Health and Safety Bill. The legislation allows school bus drivers to use epinephrine auto-injectors, or epipens, on students who are experiencing an allergic reaction while in their care. The proposal requires bus drivers to first complete a training program, which would be provided by the state Department of Health. Drivers will also need to abide by a school district's policy in order to use the epipens. Civil immunity would be provided to bus drivers who apply the epipens. more
