Nevada Medical Assisting Proposed Regulation

Posted by Jessica Langley on September 2016

The Nevada State Board of Medical Examiners is considering a proposed amendment to its medical assistant regulations. The proposed changes include the following:

  • Employers will be required to have written documentation available that demonstrates the medical assistant has been properly trained and is competent in each task he/she will perform regarding all procedures on patients.
  • Every procedure being performed by a medical assistant must be authorized and ordered by the delegating practitioner, and documented in the patient’s medical record.
  • A medical assistant shall not make a diagnosis, initiate a treatment or prescribe any drugs.

Please note that medical assistants in Nevada are not required to be licensed.
