Doctors treating schoolchildren with life threatening allergies  will instruct them what to do in case of an emergency. School nurses responsible for dealing with an anaphylactic reaction must adhere to rules set in place by the “school district and American Academy of Asthma, Allergy, and Immunology.” Choosing to err on the side of the law, less epinephrine is being administered, which presents a severe risk to the child being treated. Laws and “guidelines” must change so that school nurses can properly assist patients in their care (Wahl et al. 2015, 97).
