Are you getting the feeling that maybe school boards are not telling us the whole truth?
(n) Naloxone use and supply.—
1. A public school may purchase a supply of the opioid antagonist naloxone from a wholesale distributor as defined in 499.003 or may enter into an arrangement with a wholesale distributor or manufacturer as defined in s. 499.003 for naloxone at fair-market, free, or reduced prices for use in the event a student has an opioid overdose. The naloxone must be maintained in a secure location on the public school’s premises.
The participating school district shall adopt a protocol developed by a licensed physician for the administration of the drug by school personnel who are trained to recognize an opioid overdose and to administer naloxone.
So exactly how bad is the opioid overdose issues in schools that this bill is being offered?
