State lawmaker pushing for miracle medicine in Illinois public schools
A new proposal in Springfield could equip Illinois public schools with life saving Narcan to reverse the effects of a heroin overdose. Lawmakers say the school nurse would have the miracle medicine on hand in case someone overdosed in the building. The new legislation would make school districts and authorized personnel immune from civil liabilities if Narcan is administered in "good faith." If an event were to occur at school, whether it is during school days, after school in the grounds, or during a sporting event. then there would be the availability of that drug to use,” says Senator Dave Syverson.
