Knowing the differences

Posted

With an estimated 10 percent of the school student population with some form of allergy, URI nursing student Hannah Leddie who recently completed a program shadowing Wyman School nurse Bernadette McDowell, prepared a placard showing the four types of epipens and how they are used. Leddie also offered training sessions in the use of the devices to faculty. The school keeps on premise epipens and inhalers that parents have provided for their children. It also has epipens should a student have an allergic reaction as has happened with a bee sting that a certified school nurse can use. Here, Leddie, center, and McDowell outline the system to Wyman Principal Ronald Celio. (Warwick Beacon photo)
