NEW PROCEDURES FOR RE-LICENSURE OF EMS PROVIDERS

Since notification will be sent from the Georgia Office of EMS and Trauma to personal e-mails, it is vitally important for each person to make certain the Georgia Office of EMS and Trauma has the correct e-mail address. The information can be updated at  http://dph.georgia.gov/online-medic-profile-update  . The deadline for re-licensure submission has changed to March 30, 2017 in order to align Georgia re-licensure with National Registry renewal.  You can print your license now at the above site before you submit re-licensure information. All cards will carry an expiration date of March 30, 2017 which are printed before you submit re-licensure for the next period. Print your card now and update your information.

 

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.

You can follow this legislation at
