Over the past couple of weeks I have become more aware of opinions that could be unfortunate barriers to HB 271 being passed by the Senate. While participating in an EMS continuing education presentation, the question was put forward as to who might not be in favor of having naloxone (Narcan) more readily available for addicts, their friends, family members and others to administer emergently to anyone whose life is threatened from an opioid overdose. Surprisingly, there was more than one hand raised. The supporting commentaries shared a similar concern, that it will only aid and abet abusing illicit drugs. Others, who are not EMS providers or healthcare professionals, have also recently expressed their biases to not support easier access to Narcan, regardless of its lifesaving potential. There have been deeper dives and hard looks at the risks and benefits for bystander Narcan to be more readily available.
