The Federal Court overturned an injunction suspending assignment given by the Health Department of the Federal District nurses to prescribe medications and order tests. With this decision, the district nurses in public again have these skills. The Federal Council of Medicine (CFM) has filed an application for suspension of Ordinance 218/2012 of the Department of Health, which authorizes the nurse to act in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases such as AIDS, dengue fever, asthma, diabetes, tuberculosis, hypertension, among others, according to pre-established protocols in public health programs 18.

The document regulates the provision of Law 7498, which regulates the practice of nursing in Brazil, and it attaches to nurses prescribing medicines established in public health programs and routinely approved by the health institution.

In February 2013, the 13 th of the Judicial Section of the Federal District accepted the request of CFM and suspended the effects of the ordinance.

The judge Daniel Ribeiro says Paes lifted the injunction (preventing the actions of nurses) because committed public policies aimed at promoting the health of the population, which could cause serious injury to the public order and health.

Daniela Rossi, fiscal Regional Nursing Council, says that often, public health, physicians do not realize the demand and, therefore, it is important to assign the professional nursing responsibilities for which they are competent. The nurse said there are other states such as Goiás and Rio de Janeiro that have devices similar to the ordinance of the Health Department of the Federal District.
