ENA applauds Congress for passing, and President Trump for signing into law, the Protecting Patient Access to Emergency Medications Act. The new law, one of ENA’s legislative priorities, amends the Controlled Substances Act to ensure EMS personnel may use standing orders to administer a controlled substance in cases in which a delay in treatment could result in harm or death to the patient.
The Emergency Nurses Association released its new Emergency Department Manager’s Survival Guide, a digital reference for new and experienced ED managers. Since nearly half of U.S. medical care takes place in the ED, outstanding and informed leadership is essential to providing the best patient care. Nurses must become accustomed to unique situations and topics while acclimating to a managerial role. The ED Manager’s Survival Guide serves as transitional tool to help them adjust to the nuances of ED management.
