Naloxone: Administration – Suspected Opioid Overdose, Non-Hospital Setting – Clinical Protocol

  • The intent of this clinical protocol is to guide all Fraser Health employees to respond to a suspected opioid overdose, including the administration of Naloxone to a person, over the age of 12 years, in a non-hospital setting (location other than a hospital inpatient or inpatient-like area, e.g., hospital bathroom, hospital cafeteria, hospital parking lot, community outpatient clinic, and community outreach).

  • Naloxone is no longer a Schedule I drug and is not restricted under the restricted activities framework of the Health Professions Act when used for emergency treatment of opioid overdose.

  • Fraser Health employees must inquire with their practice setting leadership with respect to standards, authority and requirements (e.g., additional training and competencies).

Why is this important?

Fraser Health considers the patient experience in all parts of the health system. This includes the development and revision of policies, Clinical Decision Support Tools, forms, and Pre-Printed Orders. Our goal is to provide quality care that is sensitive and responsive to patient needs, preferences, and beliefs.

How will these impact students and faculty instructors?

Students and faculty instructors who are completing student placements in Fraser Health are expected to apply any necessary changes in their practice to ensure that patients, clients, and residents continue to receive safe and quality care. Students and faculty instructors can access this clinical protocol and the Pre-Printed Orders via FH Pulse when they are on Fraser Health sites.
