Paramedical Personnel

Physicians work with various nonphysician medical personnel: nurses, laboratory technicians, physician's assistants, respiratory therapists, and many others. The law must balance the restrictions on the delegation of medical decision making to nonphysicians against the special skills that these paramedical personnel possess. While a physician's license includes the right to perform all paramedical acts, the physician often is not as skilled as the paramedical personnel in carrying out these acts.
