Nurse Giving a Trigger Point Injection

Nurse Giving a Trigger Point Injection

April 25, 2019

Question:
In our office we have LPN’s working in our office who are giving trigger point injections under a physician order.  I don’t think this is correct.  Can an MA, LPN or RN give a trigger point injection?

Answer:
A trigger point injection is a procedure that can be administered by a physician, a PA or NP if it within their state scope of practice.  An MA, LPN or RN cannot give a trigger point injection.
