MEDICATION AUTHORIZATION FORM

Regulations permit child care providers to give prescription and non-prescription medication to children in care under certain conditions with prior written permission (Section A) from the child’s parent. A separate form is needed for each prescription or non-prescription medication to be administered to the child.


PRESCRIPTION MEDICATIONS AND NON-PRESCRIPTION MEDICATIONS: Prescription medications must be in a container labeled by the pharmacy or physician with the child’s name, dosage, and expiration date. At least one dose of prescription medication must be given at home prior to the child’s arrival at the child care facility. Non-prescription medications must be in the original manufacturer’s container labeled with instructions for dosage and expiration date. Except for OCC approved topical medications, a provider may administer only one dose of nonprescription medication to a child per illness unless a licensed health practitioner provides written approval (Section B) of the administration of the nonprescription medication and the dosage. All medication shall be administered according to the instructions on the label of the medication container. If Section B is not signed by the health practitioner, the health practitioner may give oral permission and instructions to the parent directly. If oral permission and instruction is given, the parent must complete Sections B and C below.
