ENA Applauds the Signing of Legislation Allowing EMS Personnel to Continue Administering Life-Saving Medication

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.
