Prescribing Medication is What Physician Assistants Can Do Now

Prescribing Medication is What Physician Assistants Can Do Now

The very first question that I raised to my family care doctor right after he employed a physician assistant was “can a PA write medication prescriptions for patients when the primary care physician is out of town?” I had to ask this question because of the fact that she wasn’t in town at the time. The answer that was given to me was a lot more than a sentence.

When it comes to different state laws, PAs are given the authority to write medication prescriptions for patients in only 48 states, excluding the states of Florida and Kentucky. Right now the state of Florida is working on getting this started for PAs and for nurse practitioners as well so that they can perform more tasks which saves time and money both for the patients and the state too. Its different for each state what a PA can do, but what is certain is that they are have to be supervised by a physician.

When it comes to them prescribing, some states don’t allow a physician assistant to re-write a prescription, and some states don’t allow PAs to write prescriptions for certain drugs. To start prescribing, all a PA has to do is get the state application for prescribing drugs, fill it out and follow the rules and they will get their certification to begin prescribing medicine.

Aside from the law, there are still other things that are going to affect whether or not a physician assistant can prescribe medication. Some of these things are the hospital or the health care facility that they work in could possibly create some rules that won’t allow them to write prescriptions. Another factor that could determine whether or not a PA can write out prescriptions is if their supervising physician doesn’t allow it.

They may have a problem with all the added stress that the PA might not be ready to give prescriptions and they might wait until they are comfortable with the PAs skills before they start letting them prescribe medications. Its bound to happen that nurse practitioners and physician assistant are going to be able to write prescriptions due to the fact that the medical world is constantly increasing and changing. There is going to be a point where doctors won’t be able to handle doing everything, and when that happens PAs will begin to do more of everything. Writing prescriptions is an important part of patient care, especially after they have been discharged.
