Sample Naloxone Hydrochloride Administration Standard Operation Procedure

Summary: 
This is a sample policy to be used as a template for a fire department to create a specific policy for their fire department. Though Tennessee law allows a properly trained individual to administer naloxone for a suspected opioid overdose, the fire department should check with their medical director BEFORE implementing a naloxone administration SOP and should follow the medical director’s advice.
