It just doesn't work like that. Who do you think orders those "standing orders." Legislators? No. Like I've tried to explain, it's a physician acting as a medical director. The state gives EMS it's scope of practice. Local physicians allow EMS to work within that scope of practice as an extension of their medical license. It's quite simple, but I just can't seem to get this through.
