Epinephrine Policy

Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh staff and volunteers are not professional medical personnel. However, basic epinephrine auto injector administration training is offered for staff and key volunteer leaders. Children who must carry epinephrine are permitted to bring and use an epinephrine auto injector on themselves in the event of an emergency. If a child cannot administer the medication to him- or herself, appropriately trained Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh staff may administer the child’s epinephrine auto injector. If an epinephrine auto injector is administered, 911 and the parent/guardian of the camper will be notified immediately.

If the child is bringing an epinephrine auto injector to camp, the parent/guardian must complete a Consent for Self-Administration of Medication form and the Epinephrine Auto Injector Policy and Consent Form, which can be obtained from Program Registration.
