Medication Dispensing Information, Permission, and Waiver
Only fill out this form if you expect camp staff to dispense medication to your child, when medication changes, or if your child will carry an asthma inhaler and/or EpiPen.
The Lake County Forest Preserves will not dispense medication to a minor child or other participant until the Medication Dispensing Information, Permission, and Waiver form has been fully completed by a parent/guardian. To review our agency's internal procedures on dispensing medication, contact 847-367-6640.
My child has permission to carry and knows how to properly use their own inhaler/EpiPen (check below) and has been instructed not to show or share it with others.
I understand that it is my responsibility to give the medication (pills or other items that are not asthma inhalers or EpiPens) directly to program staff with full instructions in individual dosage containers, clearly labeled envelopes, or in original prescription bottles with the following information:
Name of camper
Time of day to be given
Doctor’s phone number
In all cases, medication dispensing can only be changed or modified by completing a new Medication Dispensing Information, Permission, and Waiver form. I hereby acknowledge that the above information provided for the dispensing of medication for my minor child, guardian, ward, or other family member is accurate. I also understand that it is my responsibility to inform the agency if any changes in the dispensing of medication change.
Permission to Dispense Medication
In all cases the recommended dosage of any medication will not be exceeded. If after administering medication there is an adverse reaction, I give my permission to the Lake County Forest Preserves to secure from any licensed hospital physician and/or medical personnel any treatment deemed necessary for immediate care. I agree to be responsible for payment of any and all medical services rendered.
Waiver and Release of All Claims
I recognize and acknowledge that there are certain risks of physical injury in connection with the administering of medication to my minor child. Such risks include, but are not limited to, failing to properly administer the medication, failing to observe side effects, failing to assess and/or recognize an adverse reaction, failing to assess and/or recognize a medical emergency, and failing to recognize the need to summon emergency medical services.
In consideration of the Lake County Forest Preserve District administering medication to my minor child, I do hereby fully release or discharge the Lake County Forest Preserve District, and its officers, agents, volunteers and employees from any and all claims from injuries, damages and losses I or my minor child may have (or accrue to me or my minor child), and arising out of, connected with, incidental to, or in any way associated with the administering of medication.
