I am looking for suggestions on developing a First Aid Kit policy that addresses the liabilities of providing aspirin and other medicines. I want to eliminate including medicines in the kits due to allergic reaction potential, general liability, and, of course, cost! Since aspirin seems to truly be a miracle drug where heart attacks are concerned, I hate to not have meds readily available in emergencies - but how do you limit use to "real" emergencies? I am also looking for tactful ways to announce a "no meds" policy since it will look callous and/or like a "perk" is being taken away . . . How is everybody dealing with this issue? Any ideas or suggestions are welcome. Thanks, Joe Peter
