    C. A school must obtain a written note from a doctor or proper healthcare provider stating medication to be given, route, dose and frequency for an individual
    Explanation
    The California Code of Regulations, Title 5, Education Code 49423 requires schools to obtain a written note from a doctor or proper healthcare provider that specifies the medication to be given, the route of administration, the dose, and the frequency for an individual student. This ensures that medications are administered safely and accurately to students. It also provides clear instructions for school personnel on how to administer the medication. The written note serves as a form of consent and authorization from a healthcare professional, confirming that the medication is necessary and appropriate for the student.

    Types of medications usually present in a school setting include:

    • A.

      Short-term use medications

    • B.

      Over-the Counter medications

    • C.

      Emergency medications

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "All of the above" because in a school setting, there are typically various types of medications present. Short-term use medications may be required for students who have temporary health conditions or injuries. Over-the-counter medications are often kept on hand for common ailments like headaches or allergies. Emergency medications are necessary for situations that require immediate medical attention, such as severe allergic reactions or asthma attacks. Therefore, all three types of medications are usually found in a school setting.

    When it comes to medication administration, “Universal Precautions” means:

    • A.

      Proper hand washing before and after giving medications

    • B.

      Using bare hands if medication has to be placed directly in a child’s mouth

    • C.

      Watch a child self- administer medication so that you do not have to touch the medication

    Correct Answer
    A. Proper hand washing before and after giving medications
    Explanation
    "Universal Precautions" refers to a set of infection control practices aimed at preventing the transmission of diseases. In the context of medication administration, it means that healthcare providers should practice proper hand hygiene by washing their hands thoroughly with soap and water before and after giving medications. This helps to reduce the risk of spreading germs and infections to both the healthcare provider and the patient.

    Correct Answer
    D. Do NOT return unused medications back into their container if already removed
    Explanation
    When administering medications, it is important to follow certain guidelines to ensure safety and effectiveness. The given answer states that one should not return unused medications back into their container if already removed. This is because returning unused medications back into their container can lead to contamination or mixing of different medications, which can be dangerous. It is important to properly dispose of unused medications to prevent any potential harm or misuse.

  • 5. 

    Requirements for proper administration of medication include all EXCEPT:     

    • A.

      Obtaining a written note from a parent or guardian AND a health care provider with a list of medication consented to be administered.

    • B.

      A written note regarding a list of medications to be administered only has to be obtained once throughout a child’s time in the school.

    • C.

      The written note containing a child’s list of medications should include the name of the child, medication to be taken, how much, what route, and at what time.

    Correct Answer
    B. A written note regarding a list of medications to be administered only has to be obtained once throughout a child’s time in the school.
    Explanation
    Proper administration of medication requires obtaining a written note from a parent or guardian and a healthcare provider with a list of medication consented to be administered. This ensures that the school has proper authorization to administer the medication and is aware of any potential allergies or interactions. The written note should include the child's name, medication details (name, dosage, route, and timing), to ensure accurate administration. However, the statement that the written note only needs to be obtained once throughout a child's time in the school is incorrect. The note should be obtained for each new medication or any changes in the existing medication.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The person to whom you are about to administer a medication to should match with the name of the person on the medication container.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    It is important for the person to whom you are administering medication to match with the name on the medication container to ensure accuracy and prevent any potential errors. This is crucial in order to avoid giving the medication to the wrong person, which could have serious consequences. By verifying the person's identity and confirming it matches with the name on the container, you can ensure that the medication is being administered to the correct individual.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    The FIVE RIGHTS to proper medication administration include the right person, the right medication, the right dose, the right route, and the right frequency.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because the five rights of medication administration are essential for ensuring patient safety and the effectiveness of the medication. The right person ensures that the medication is administered to the correct patient, the right medication ensures that the correct drug is given, the right dose ensures that the appropriate amount of medication is administered, the right route ensures that the medication is given through the correct route (e.g., oral, intravenous), and the right frequency ensures that the medication is given at the correct intervals. By adhering to these five rights, healthcare professionals can minimize medication errors and promote optimal patient outcomes.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    It is ok to skip checking the five rights once one becomes familiar with the child and the medication.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Skipping the five rights (right patient, right medication, right dose, right route, and right time) is not acceptable, even if one becomes familiar with the child and the medication. Familiarity does not eliminate the possibility of errors or changes in the child's condition. Adhering to the five rights is crucial to ensure the safety and well-being of the child and to prevent medication errors. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Do NOT administer unlabeled medications or medications with incomplete instructions.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Administering unlabeled medications or medications with incomplete instructions can be dangerous and potentially harmful to patients. Without proper labeling and complete instructions, healthcare professionals may not have the necessary information to safely administer the medication, including dosage, frequency, and potential side effects. This can lead to medication errors and adverse reactions. Therefore, it is important to always follow proper labeling and ensure that medications have complete instructions before administering them.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    It is ok to give an expired medication if it still looks ok to give.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Giving an expired medication, even if it still looks okay, is not recommended. Medications have expiration dates for a reason, as they may lose their effectiveness or even become harmful after a certain period. The chemical composition of the medication can change over time, leading to potential risks and adverse effects on the patient's health. Therefore, it is important to adhere to the expiration dates and dispose of expired medications properly to ensure safety and effectiveness.
