Allergy & Asthma Network shared a story on their Facebook page about a student who was disciplined for sharing their inhaler with another student
What would you do?
If your student has an inhaler at school, and they see another friend having an asthma attack and struggling to breathe, should they share their inhaler?
I know that legally, prescriptions are NOT allowed to be shared.
But - would this be considered a "medical emergency"?
Should they let someone use their inhaler?
The student who did so was suspended and sent to an "alternative school."
I know the panic of having an asthma attack and not being able to get my inhaler.
What are your thoughts?
