Safe Access to Vital Epinephrine (SAVE) Act
The Safe Access to Vital Epinephrine (SAVE) Act, recently approved by the South Carolina Legislature, allows school districts to store supplies of epinephrine auto-injectors for identified school staff to use in emergencies for individuals with unknown life-threatening allergic reactions, or anaphylaxis.
Parents and guardians of students with known allergies should continue to provide epinephrine auto-injectors for their children at school. These students will continue to have Emergency Care Plans (ECPs) and Individual Healthcare Plans (IHPs) developed by the school nurse.
Every school in ASD4 has a full time registered nurse and at least 5 first responders who are trained in recognizing signs and symptoms of anaphylaxis, epinephrine auto-injector administration and follow up procedures in the case of allergic reactions.
