    First thing is the parent has to be the caregiver of a minor. Or the guardianship has to be signed over of said child to the caregiver.

    I know the paperwork is very sticky !! Also I believe the said minor can not have any meds of any kind in his possession

    As far as I know minors can absolutely possess meds. My little boy is a patient and I don't recall reading anything about not being able to possess.

    Does the parents have some 'friendly' doctors yet? If they have any issues getting signatures, please let me know, I may be able to help.

    Good luck and God bless

    Of course, the caregiver for a minor should be the parents or guardian, but in other case there could be some nursing care also as to check on proper medication and treatments, which parents or guardian might note be able to perform.
