Nurses illegally inject Botox without Doctor’s Supervising

Posted Aug 11 2009 12:00am

The Cosmetic Physicians Association of Australia (CPSA) says it’s aware of doctors prescribing S4 medicines such as botulinum toxin, or botox, enabling nurses to administer unsupervised treatments.

Interesting. This is done in the US all the time in Botox clinics in which doctors supposedly serve as medical directors, but are not present for the actual treatments.

Dr Caswell said it was illegal and against medical board guidelines for nurses to administer botox treatments without a doctor’s supervision.

However, she said there were cases of nurses holding botox parties and travelling interstate to carry out the treatments.

This is actually illegal in Australia it seems. Too bad they don’t follow their own law and we don’t have one like it.

Best Regards,
