Sir:

 

Your Committee on Consumer Protection & Commerce, to which was referred S.B. No. 984, S.D. 1, H.D. 1, entitled:

 

"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO SCHOOL BASED HEALTH SERVICES,"

 

begs leave to report as follows:

 

The purpose of this measure is to authorize the administration of prescribed medication by school health aides to students attending a public school if:

 

(1) An advanced practice registered nurse with prescriptive authority prescribed the medication; and

 

(2) The administration of prescribed medication is approved by an on-campus, school-based, health care provider pursuant to a written agreement with the Department of Education.

 

The Department of Education, Department of Health, Hawaii State Center for Nursing, University of Hawaii System, and a few individuals supported this measure. An individual opposed this measure.

 

As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Consumer Protection & Commerce that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 984, S.D. 1, H.D. 1, and recommends that it be referred to your Committee on Finance.

 

 

Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Consumer Protection & Commerce,
