AUGUSTA— Rep. Justin Chenette is spearheading legislation to permit trained, non-medical school personnel to administer U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved seizure rescue medications to children who suffer from epilepsy.
“This will prevent the unnecessary deaths of children with epilepsy,” said Chenette, D-Saco. “Why are we allowing children to suffer when there is a FDA-approved, doctor-prescribed medication much like an epi-pen?”
