Minn. Stat. 147A.20 An AP may prescribe drugs, devices and controlled substances if they are delegated by the supervising physician and identified in the delegation agreement. Mr. Minn. The Staff Regulations shall define what should be included in the agreement, including the practical parameters and any limitations on services. Dentists may prescribe painkillers, anti-inflammatories and antibiotics, if described in the written practice agreement. Mr. Minn. Stat. 150A.105 The delegation agreement describes the tasks and responsibilities of the father in the position assigned by the physician.
Services must be provided as part of the PA`s training and experience. Mr. Minn. Stat. 147A.09 Dental hygienists employed or mandated by a non-profit dental hygiene institution, program or organization may provide these services without the patient being seen for the first time by a dentist, if the dental hygienist meets certain experience requirements and a written cooperation contract with a dentist is entered into.
