No school district, administrator, school board member, school nurse, or designated school personnel possessing or making available opioid antagonists in accordance with state law, and no health care professional providing training in relation thereto, may be held liable for any injury or related damage that results from the administration of, the self-administration of, or the failure to administer an opioid antagonist, if such action or inaction constitutes, ordinary negligence. This immunity does not apply to an act or omission constituting gross, willful, or wanton negligence. The administration of an opioid antagonist does not constitute the practice of medicine.
