A state lawmaker wants every school in the commonwealth required to stock pre-filled injections designed to treat severe allergic reactions.
Rep. Bob Freeman, a Democrat from Northampton says that such reactions can be life-threatening, and having such devices on hand would allow school officials to act quickly in an emergency.
The devices such as EpiPens are used to inject epinephrine into someone showing signs of a serious allergic reaction such as hives, throat tightening and decreased blood pressure.
The proposal would build on a 2010 law that allows students to carry such devices with parental and doctor approval. Freeman said the shots would ideally be administered by a school nurse, although he acknowledges that not all schools have full-time nurses.
