EMT basic scope of practice


I am a brand new EMT-IV in Tennessee. I am an EMT basic and in Tennessee we offer a special license for EMT basics to start IVs and give certain meds via IV. I was also trained to give shots IM and SC.

I was wondering if anyone knew if EMT basics are allowed to give any medications via IM with a doctor's orders and under a doctor's supervision.

thank you,
Jason

Search of the site will show a heated debate on that very subject last week.

No we didn't. We never said the same thing over and over.

I mean, I said my view, and you said yours, and I said mine, and you said yours, and I spelled a word wrong in mine, and you made fun of it and said yours.

Your view is wrong mine is right. Or was it we were both wrong and someone else was right? Or was it I was wrong?
