Law Allows First Responders To Administer Anti-OD Med
Date posted - April 7, 2016
Branstad described the law as a step forward in avoiding tragedies.
Kim Brown is a registered nurse from Davenport, whose son died of a heroin overdose in 2011. He wasn’t alone at the time and she thinks if a friend or family member had been able to give him Naloxone, he might be alive today.
Iowa now joins 45 other states which let anyone administer Naloxone to revive someone who’s overdosed and stopped breathing.
