Protecting Patient Access to Emergency Medications Act of 2016

Dr. Julio Lairet will be attending a U.S. House of Representatives committee meeting on HR4365 which has been renamed “Protecting Patient Access to Emergency Medications Act of 2016”. This resolution if passed will make the handling of controlled substances easier for Emergency Services.  HR 4365 was introduced by Representative Hudson on January 12, 2016 and would make the following changes for EMS:

1. Permit EMS agencies to have a DEA number instead of using their medical director DEA number

2. Permit EMS agencies to have a single DEA number instead of one for each location where drugs are stored

3. Permit EMS agencies to have standing orders for controlled substances issued by their medical director

4. Update the procedures for receipt, movement and storage of controlled substances

5. Change the requirement of the completion of form 222 whenever controlled substances are moved.

The same legislation was simultaneously introduced in the United State Senate to speed up the process of approval for the president’s signature.
