Requirements for Physicians Reporting Supervisory Relationships

Posted in Latest News on March 25, 2016.

Reporting requirements for physicians differ from the reporting requirements for Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioners.

Section 459.025 (a)(4), Florida Statutes, states “the osteopathic physician shall submit notice to the board. The notice shall contain a statement in substantially the following form:

I, (name and professional license number of physician), of (address of physician) have hereby entered into a formal supervisory relationship, standing orders, or an established protocol with (number of persons) emergency medical technician(s), (number of persons) paramedic(s), or (number of persons) advanced registered nurse practitioners.

(b) Notice shall be filed within 30 days of entering into the relationship, orders or protocol. Notice also shall be provided within 30 days after the physician has terminated any such relationship, orders, or protocol.”

The license number(s) of the emergency medical technicians(s), paramedic(s) and/or advanced registered nurse practitioner(s), along with the effective date of the supervisory relationship or termination, should also be provided.

This is the only information osteopathic physicians are required to report to the Florida Board of Osteopathic Medicine. There is no obligation for physicians to send any annual or biennial notice to the Board of Osteopathic Medicine.

For information regarding the reporting requirements for Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioners, please check out the FAQs at the Board of Nursing’s website http://floridasnursing.gov.
