Relating to training requirements for public school nurses and certain other school personnel regarding seizure recognition and related first aid.
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
HB 684 would require school nurses to complete an online training program that would consist of techniques for caring for students with seizures. Nurses who had completed the training would be authorized to administer medicine to a student who was suffering from a seizure. This bill would also require school employees who come into regular contact with students with epilepsy or seizure disorders to take an online training course for the purpose of awareness of students with seizures. The curriculum would be comprised of information on seizure recognition and related first aid.
Texas Action remains neutral on HB 684 because it does not promote or violate any of our principles.
