Senate Bill 139 (the bill) generally allows a health care provider to prescribe an epinephrine auto-injector in the name of an entity or organization operating a business, activity, or event at which allergens capable of causing anaphylaxis may be present.  The entity or organization must designate an employee or agent to be responsible for the storage, maintenance, control, oversight, and use of the epinephrine auto-injectors. That employee or agent must complete training required under the bill. The training may be provided by a nationally recognized organization experienced in training laypersons in emergency health treatment or a person approved by the Department of Health Services (DHS).
