Nebraska Naloxone Standing Order
On May 27, 2015, LB 390 was signed into law authorizing the expanded access to naloxone, a life-saving drug used to reverse the effects of an opioid overdose. Although Neb. Rev. Stat. Sec. 28-470 allows pharmacists to dispense naloxone without a prescription, if a prescription is desired, the Nebraska Naloxone Standing Order signed by Dr. Tom Williams, Chief Medical Officer and Director of the Division of Public Health, can be used in its place, pursuant to Neb. Rev. Stat. Sec. 38-2840.
