The California Supreme Court deals with insulin-administration case

The California Supreme Court will be hearing a case that will determine whether school employees can administer insulin to diabetic students, rather than only licensed nurses. This case will set a precedent for protecting the rights of schoolchildren with diabetes or other medical conditions.

The problem here is that insulin is a tricky thing. The wrong dose can be fatal. Have an untrained, overworked school employee administering insulin to diabetic children could be disastrous. Procedures like this should be left to trained professionals so children in school can remain safe and healthy.
