Administration of drugs by certain school employees. Provides that a prescriber may authorize an employee of a school for students with disabilities as defined in 22.1-319 licensed by the Board of Education, or a private school accredited in accordance with standards prescribed by the Board of Education pursuant to 22.1-19 by a state-recognized accrediting member approved by the Virginia Council for Private Education who is trained in the administration of insulin and glucagon to assist with the administration of insulin or administer glucagon to a student diagnosed as having diabetes and who requires insulin injections during the school day or for whom glucagon has been prescribed for the emergency treatment of hypoglycemia pursuant to a written order or standing protocol and provides immunity from civil damages for ordinary negligence in acts or omissions resulting from the rendering of such treatment to such employees, provided that the insulin is administered in accordance with the child's medication schedule or such employee has reason to believe the individual receiving the glucagon is suffering or about to suffer life-threatening hypoglycemia. The bill also allows nurse practitioners and physician assistants to provide training programs on the administration of drugs to students of private schools accredited in accordance with standards prescribed by the Board of Education by state-recognized accrediting members approved by the Virginia Council for Private Education.
