Hi All!

I found the following as the scope of practice in Ohio: http://www.ems.ohio.gov/PDF/EMS_SCOPE_Practice0608.pdf (outdated)

I was wondering if there are similar files/sites for other states. I'm particularly interested in Missouri since I'll be splitting my time between St. Louis, MO and Columbus, OH.

Feel free to add your state(s)'s scope of practice as well and maybe we can keep a kind of a database for easy reference!

I wish I could find this information for Mississippi. I found the EMS site but it has no info on protocols.

I would assume that protocols would not be on a state site since protocols are designated by each department/hospital/company's medical director. I was looking for a legal scope of practice. I'll update my OP as I get more but I can't find one for missouri right now and massacussets was not easily found either.

I'm not sure about scope of practice, but for PA:

State OEMS Website: http://www.dsf.health.state.pa.us/health/cwp/view.asp?Q=237548

BLS Protocols: http://www.dsf.health.state.pa.us/health/lib/health/ems/bls_protocols_2004.pdf

ALS Protocols: http://www.dsf.health.state.pa.us/health/lib/health/ems/als_protocols-effective_07-01-07.pdf

In PA, ALS and BLS protocols are now state-wide. On the ALS side, there are a few options that are service medical director options... including medication facilitated intubation.

And I merged the post, WuLabsWuTech

For some reason the edit button is still not appearing in my original post for me to be able to add these links to the main post. I was hoping to be able to just keep a running list there with the date retrieved and then alphabatize the list by state.

Oh and thanks to whoever stickied this!

The edit button disappears after 15 minutes. However, you can PM me with a list of changes you'd like to make to the original post and I will fix it.



And you're welcome. :)

Minnesota

Minnesota is writing model protocols, but does not intend to make them a state standard for scope of care.
