Schools are equipped to come to the aid of students with known food allergies, injecting life-saving ephinephrin through a simple-to-use pen. But what the allergy is unknown and the child is having a life-or-death reaction? School nurses are pushing for a change in state law to allow schools to use epi-pens when needed, even without a standing order. We'll talk about the law and the range of issues school nurses face these days.
