Last Friday, 15-year-old Luis Rodriguez Jr. was having an allergic reaction to a bee sting while riding the school bus home.

Prince George County Schools Health Services Coordinator Teresa Isom received the call about the situation, realized the bus was near her office, grabbed a pack of Epi Pens and raced to the bus.

Isom said the first Epi Pen did not improve his symptoms, so a second dose was given.


Quote:
The new law requires schools in Virginia to have a stock of Epi Pens to protect students that have an unknown allergic reaction.

That brings tears to my eyes to know that Health Services Co-ordinator was on the ball and took multiple epis to help the young man.

Just realized that this woman did what others have been unwilling to do: she used the epi-pens on a student without a prescription --- i.e., she did it to save his life without worrying about whether or not he had a prescription!

Exactly. It's so important to think fast and confidently.
And with the law now on her side ... well, a boy's well today.
