116. A childcare provider may not keep any medication that is not in its original container or packaging, as the case may be, clearly labelled and marked with the name of the person for whom it is intended.
However, a home childcare provider is only subject to the provisions of the first paragraph with regard to medication for the children receiving childcare.
O.C. 582-2006, s. 116; O.C. 1314-2013, s. 62.
116. A childcare provider must ensure that no medication is administered to a child without the written authorization of the parent and a member of the Collège des médecins du Québec.
In the case of prescribed medication, the information given by the pharmacist on the label describing the medication is proof of the physician’s authorization.
Despite the first paragraph, acetaminophen may be administered and insect repellent applied without medical authorization, provided it is done in accordance with the protocol set out in Schedule II. Saline nasal drops and oral hydration solutions may be administered and zinc oxide-based cream for the seat area, calamine lotion and sun cream may be applied without medical authorization to a child, provided the child’s parent has given written authorization.
