How do I track PRN medications?

    in Prescription Tracker

    The prescription medication tracker is a great feature to track medication administration at a set time during the school day. But what about students that only take medications on an “as needed” basis? Great news, our medication tracker filters will help you meet this need.

    • Step-by-Step Instructions

    Go to Front Desk.

    Go to Prescription.

    Locate the student’s name then select the corresponding View link under the Docs column.

    Select Add Medication at the bottom section of the student’s prescription tracker.

    Enter information into the required medication fields with the red asterisk.

    Next to the field What Times: select Other Time.

    In the text box beside Other Time enter: “PRN”.

    • Tips and Tricks

    Only enter medications that will be administered during the school day. Parents should enter any medications received at home. Once you add or modify a medication listed in the student’s medication it becomes school managed and parents cannot make any changes to the entry.

    Searching for PRN Medications in the medication schedule.
    Go to Front Desk.

    Select Prescription.

    Select Other Time in the Filters drop down box.

    Click Medication Schedule. This will return all students with a custom time filter, ie PRN.
