Contingent Medication Authorization cards were enclosed with the June 2001 newsletter. It includes information on medications being taken as well as permission for contingent leaders to administer ibuprofen (i.e. Advil) or acetaminophen (i.e. Tylenol). These over-the-counter pain killers will be carried by each third assistant scoutmaster who is responsible for first aid and records. Do not send these medications. No aspirin will be given.
We will not give any medication without permission of a parent/guardian.
If a Scout has medications they will be taking during the pre-encampment weekend or during the Jamboree and tour, send them in the original container with the Scout's name on it. All medications are turned in at check-in along with the Medication Authorization card.
If a Scout must carry the medication with him (i.e. rescue inhaler), bring two. Turn one in and show the other at check in. The same procedure will be used at the pre-departure check-in at Ogilvie.
