Medication

On this page:


Use the Medication tab on the student Health page to manage medication administration. For any medication that you are going to administer to a student, whether a scheduled medication or on-demand medication, first add the medication and then add the inventory. The same units should be used across all medication records for a specific medication for a specific student. For example, when associating a medication with a student where the unit of tablet is used, then the inventory and doses should also be tracked using tablet.

Note: This page is available with Enhanced Health Management.
