School nurses teaching staff that work with children how to properly use an Epipen would solve many of the problems that children with severe allergies are faced with in that environment. If people who work with children aren’t trained to recognize an allergic reaction or are unaware how to treat it, there will be precious time wasted to find a treatment that isn’t immediate and could therefore put a child’s life at risk.  Emergency plans such as calling the parents of kids that have documented food allergies could help the child after a certain amount of time, however that time might have a stronger affect on the reaction. In many other cases, children have allergic reaction to unknown allergens in which case, calling a parent would not be effective. School nurses should be given the resources to train those that work with children how to immediately respond to a reaction using an Epipen as well as back up emergency plans. (Wahl et al. 2015,97)
