New Legislation Impacting Your Profession

Posted in Latest News on May 24, 2016.

HB 1241 was passed during the 2016 Legislative Session and provides authority for an advanced registered nurse practitioner (ARNP) to order any medication for administration to a patient in a hospital, ambulatory surgical center, nursing home, or mobile surgical facility within the framework of an established protocol. Physician assistants (PA) may also order any medication for administration to the supervising physician’s patient in a nursing home with their supervising physician’s delegation.

A supervising physician may authorize a PA and ARNP to order controlled substances for administration to a patient in a hospital, ambulatory surgical center, nursing home, or mobile surgical facility.

In addition, the bill expands the Florida’s Emergency Treatment and Recover Act, which allows pharmacists to dispense emergency opioid antagonists to individuals based upon a non-patient-specific standing order issued for auto injection delivery systems or intranasal application delivery systems if they are appropriately labeled with instructions for use.

These provisions will become effective July 1, 2016.
