    You'd be better off with a multi-tool knife to be honest.  Leatherman of the sorts, and if not that then a simple pair of trauma shears will go a very long way in the field.

    The problem will lie with the company's insurance carrier.  Being that this was <10 years ago, I imagine it will be difficult to find an employer. I would call local companies near you and ask them though.

    I'm all for treating it like an Epi-Pen, you need a prescription for it.  Like doc said, no side effect is worse than death so why not?

    Was the concern over provider safety maybe?  I could see LEO's being on scene of some OD calls before EMS d/t provider safety concerns. 
     
    On a side not, I had an ICU nurse tell me to push Narcan as fast as I could and chase it was a flush to get to the patient quickly when they were just slightly respiratory depressed...

    Was he on DVT prophylaxis in the hospital?  Heparin or Lovenox?  Pneumatic compression devices?  I don't work on a cardiac floor but know that DVT prophylaxis is standard on the inpatient units.  It does seem like it was just this guys time to go.  bummer.

    It's going to be interesting.  Only time will tell if having one big empire vs two will be ok or not.
