A Clark County District judge ruled today that emergency regulations approved by the Nevada State Board of Medical Examiners that would have allowed medical assistants to give flu shots and other vaccinations while prohibiting the injection of cosmetic drugs cannot go into effect.
Judge Kathleen Delaney issued a temporary restraining order following a lawsuit filed today by attorney Jacob Hafter on behalf of Tracy Hurst, of the Medical Spa at Summerlin, and Amber Tsang, of the Skin Care Institute, who argued that the medical board violated the state’s open meeting law on Friday.
At least three people who showed up for the medical board hearing Friday were denied the right to speak, the filing states.
The judge ordered a Sept. 29 hearing on the case.
