The Doctors: First Grader Died From Anaphylactic Shock At School

The Doctors then switched gears entirely to share news of a tragedy that occurred at a Virginia elementary school. A 7-year-old girl died from anaphylactic shock while she was at school. The school didn’t administer an Epi-Pen injection because of the district protocol to administer life-saving medication only when they have a treatment plan on file. Because of the rule, the 1st grader passed away and the mom stated that she actually did have a treatment plan on file. Regardless, why would teachers not override school policy if it meant saving a life?

Following the girl’s death, Amaria’s Law was enacted that permits Virgina schools to stock Epi-Pens and use them when a child is thought to be suffering a severe allergic reaction. Dr Tanya Elliott explained that you do need a prescription to get an Epi-Pen, so be sure to talk to your doctor. An Epi-Pen is the life-saving treatment in the case of anaphylaxis. Always remember “blue to the sky, orange to the thigh” and hold the pen to the person’s thigh for ten seconds. Call 911 and have the person transported to the hospital right away.

It’s always a good idea to have an Epi-Pen available, just in case, because you never know what could happen.
