The Office of Child Care Licensing (OCCL) has a new Self-Study Guide for the Administration of Medication that includes many updates. This guide includes diagrams showing how to administer diazepam, an EpiPen®, and Glucagon®. In addition, it now includes the specific procedures for administering medication. The guide also explains the process that child care providers must complete in order to administer non-intravenous medication to children in care. Lastly, the guide now includes two types of Medication Administration Records; one used for routine or limited time use medication and one for medication that is given as needed or for emergency use.
OCCL is working toward having an online payment system for testing registration. We will keep you posted when this change occurs.
