Why this petition matters

Started by Kimberly Fields

This year alone my daughter has been exposed to her food allergies at her school 2 times. It is not mandatory to have a licensed trained professional at Texas schools on campus during operating hours. There are hundreds of students in her school! There are hundreds of students with medical problems/needs and the increase of asthma allergy students is on the rise. My daughter alone has a plethora of medications to take in an emergency situation. During one exposure the school nurse was not on campus. There are different types of epinephrine auto injectors and not everyone is fully trained on emergency action plans. I do believe that Texas would benefit in making it mandatory to have an LVN/RN on campus at ALL times students are on campus regardless. I know the school settings are lacking in this area and the systems are already stretched financially. One can not put a price on a life.
