Physical Therapist Administration of Respiratory Therapy Treatments during Declared Emergency

Posted December 15, 2022
During a declared public health emergency for COVID, RSV, or influenza, a Utah licensed physical therapist may administer certain respiratory therapy treatments, including the non-invasive delivery of medication to non-critical patients. This exemption includes permitting a physical therapist to administer aerosols in an institutional setting, even if a respiratory therapist is available in, or within a 10-mile radius of, the institution. See Utah Code §58-24b-403(2). The physical therapist must be adequately trained and work under the general supervision of an actively licensed respiratory care practitioner (respiratory therapist). This temporary emergency expansion does not alter the applicable standard of practice for any profession.
