A school shall have provided to the parent or legal guardian of every student enrolled in school an emergency medical authorization form. Thereafter, the school shall, within thirty (30) days after the entry of any student into a school, provide the parent or legal guardian of such student, either as part of any registration form, or as a separate form, a copy of the Emergency Medical Form.
When the form is returned to the school, the school shall keep the form on file, and shall send the form to any school of a city, exempted village, local, or joint vocational school district to which the student is transferred. Upon request of his parent or guardian, authorities of the school in which the student is enrolled may permit such parent or guardian to make changes in a previously filed form, or to file a new form.
If a parent or guardian does not wish to give such written permission, he shall indicate in the proper place on the form the procedure he wishes school authorities to follow in the event of a medical emergency involving his child.
Even if a parent or guardian gives written consent for emergency medical treatment, when a student become ill or is injured and requires emergency medical treatment while under school authority, or while engaged in an extracurricular activity authorized by the appropriate school authorities, the authorities of the school in which the student is enrolled shall make reasonable attempts to contact the parent or legal guardian before the treatment is given. The school shall present the student’s emergency medical authorization form or copy thereof to the hospital or practitioner rendering treatment. (cf. Rev. Code 3313-712)
