Hi I recently quit my job at a pain clinic. I'm a new nurse and the environment just did not feel safe to me. A couple things I noticed were that the Medical Assistants (MA's) passed out meds to the patient's (mostly valium). They were not able to get them out of the drawer but they were the ones physically passing them out. Another thing was that the MA's started IV's. This practice is in TN and I am new to the area. I know in the state I come from these two things are not allowed. Could anyone tell me if this is legal in TN? If it is not should I report it to someone? to Who?
