Medication Administration Form

Child care programs must have a written policy for the use of any medication (prescription and nonprescription) that the facility keeps on hand to use with parental consent. This form documents such authorization of administration of medication for a child while in care. The reverse side of the form is a monthly medication log that allows the monitoring and tracking of medication dispensation.
