First Aid/giving injections at home

Question
Is it legal for an lpn to give Antibiotic injection to someone without dr approval?

Answer
Hi Cynthia, to be honest, I guess it would depend in which State that you lived in. Have you been trained in giving injections? Do LPN's give injections where you work? How did the patient get the antibiotic? I guess what I am trying to say is, I don't know..
