TN School Nurse Saves Boy After Bee Sting

An elementary school nurse recognized the signs and symptoms of anaphylaxis and quickly treated a third-grade boy with epinephrine.  He had been stung by a wasp during recess and didn't have any known allergies.

Earlier this year, Tennessee passed a law encouraging all schools to stock undesignated epinephrine auto-injectors to be used in allergic emergencies.
