David's Law

Messages Sent So Far
Children with Cystic Fibrosis are required to take supplemental pancreatic enzymes before meals. These enzymes allow the student to digest food properly. Currently, the law states, each student must go to the nurse?s office, each day. The nurse than administers the medication to the student. This is a time consuming process, which takes forces the student to leave class early or miss part of the lunch hour. This inhibits the student?s ability to either learn or have adequate time to finish lunch. This is also becoming problematic, due to budget cuts in the schools. Some schools are eliminating full-time nurses, which would make it impossible for students to take their medication each day.

Some schools have passed laws that allow students to carry medication such as over over-the-counter pain relief medications. The main impetus for the current restrictions is to insure the safety of the students by keeping controlled substances (such as prescription medications) out of the hallways and classrooms of the school.

However, the danger of someone taking un-prescribed pancreatic enzymes is negligible.

We believe students who have Cystic Fibrosis and require pancreatic enzymes before meals, with a Doctor?s note, should be able to carry and administer their own medication. If the student demonstrates understanding and compliance with the prescribed dosage, before the school nurse, the student should be free to carry and administer the medication.

If you agree, please sign this petition and contact your lawmakers both state and federal, so David?s Law will become law as soon as possible.

I believe that mature students should be able to carry and take there medication,I am also a firm believer that the school employee prinicapl /teachers educated more about cystic fibrosis..I have a 6yr old grandson with cystic fibrosis,that goes to school he has his own private nurse with him at all times,I have asked the principal at different times what he knew about c.f,how would he be able to recognize *when a child c.f was flaring up?*how would the teacher's recognize it?,I have asked to have the Albany medical center pediactric pulmonary unit come in and explain some things to the staff*this idea was suggested, by the Albany medical center pulmonary unit* and this is the response I recieved by the rensselaer elementary principal *we would have to put it on the agenda,it would also have to be worked out to where the students(meaning my grandson)teachers was available to attend the meeting!! This is the statement that was said to me in October of 2015 by the elementary principal *well,here it is the end of the school year,and that meeting never was placed on the agenda * it is important for all staff to be educated about any child sickness *they are already aware of children with diabetes, seizures, asthmatic children. ..ect,why can they not be educated with children that have cystic fibrosis? Not only dose my grandson have cystic fibrosis, but he also has a trechostomy as well (this is why he has a private nurse ) the school system's need to be educated more about cystic fibrosis student's and the needs that are affiliated with them..and furthermore * I DO NOT BELIEVE A PRINICAL SHOULD HAVE THE RIGHT,TO MAKE A 504 PLAN FOR ANY CYSTIC FIBROSIS CHILD *especially when they don't have the knowledge/education that is needed for the child.

CF patients also need lots of calories, taking time away from thier short lunch period doesn't help. The enzymes would not hurt anyone if gotten in the wrong hands.

As a teacher with CF students, I would very much like to see this law passed, especially since students will be required to show the school nurse their understanding and compliance with the prescribed dosage.
