A public hearing was held on Bill 224-34 authorizing delegation of student health services to school employees other than health care practitioners under specific circumstances and limiting liability of personnel providing student health services. GFT supports the improvement of student health services at public schools with protocols and guidelines established by the Guam Department of Education and the Department of Public Health and Social Services. GFT testified that there should be specific deadlines for the establishment of the protocols and guidelines. The bill would give easier access for students to receive their medication; however with guidelines established that would include parent consents and designated school personnel who are willing to receive proper training.
