Kentucky House votes to allow more school staff members to give insulin shots

Kentucky House members passed a bill on Monday that would allow more school staff members to give insulin shots to students at school. The vote passed by a 91-0 count on Monday and now heads to the Senate for consideration. The bill would allow school staff members who are not licensed health care providers to give injections, or to help students self-administer treatment. The school staff members would have to receive training from health care professionals. The decision for school staff on whether to administer the insulin to students would be voluntary.
