Safe delivery of medications to children in summer camps.

Abstract

Summer camps should be a safe and fun experience for children. Each year, many nurses assume the responsibility for health care of campers and are faced with a variety of medication and clinical challenges. This survey of medication practices in summer camps revealed a need for improved collaboration among camp personnel, families, and primary care providers. The findings of this study indicate a need for improved communication about medications among all the parties involved to ensure continuity of health care. Pediatric nurses have the opportunity to be proactive by providing parents and children with strategies to assure the best possible summer camp experiences.
