HB208 was signed into law in 2015 and provided immunity for prescribing and administering an opioid antagonist, such as naloxone. This is commonly known as a "Good Samaritan Law". In 2016, HB379 was signed into law, providing the State Health Officer or a county health officer the authority to write a standing order for dispensing naloxone.
Read the Standing Order from the state Health Officer on Naloxone distribution for overdose prevention and download the Naloxone Client form ( found on page 6 of standing order). The Standing Order also allows bulk dispensing to first responders. The Naloxone Agency Form is found on page 7.
