Tennessee AED Law - Senate Bill 1158 (SB 1158)

The State of Tennessee AED Law requires owners of an AED to follow certain regulations when owning the AED.  The Tennessee AED Law states the following:

"SECTION 3. In order for entity to use or allow the use of an automated external defibrillator, the entity shall:

(1) establish a program for the use of an AED that includes a written plan that complies with subsections 2 through 6 and rules adopted by the department of Health. The plan must specify:

(a) where the AED will be placed

(b) the individuals who are authorized to operate the AED

(c) how the AED will be coordinated with an emergency medical service providing services in the area where the AED is located;

(d) the maintenance and testing that will be performed on the AED;

(e) records that will be kept by the program

(f) reports that will be made of AED use;

(g) other matters as specified by the department

(h) a plan of action for proper usage of the AED

(2) adhere to the written plan required by subsection (1);

(3) ensure that before using the AED, expected users receive appropriate training approved by the department in cardiopulmonary resuscitation and the proper use of an AED;

(4) maintain, test, and operate the AED according to the manufacturer's guidelines and maintain written records of all maintenance and testing performed on the AED;

(5) each time an AED is used for an individual in cardiac arrest, require that an emergency medical service is summoned to provide assistance as soon as possible and that the AED use is reported to the supervising physician or the person designated by the physician and to the department as required by the written plan;

(6) before allowed any use of an AED, provide to the emergency communications district or the primary provider of emergency medical services where the defibrillator is located:

(a) a copy of the plan prepared pursuant to this section; and

(b) written notice, in a format prescribed by department rules, stating:

(i) that an AED program is established by the entity

(ii) where the AED is located; and

(iii) how the use of the AED is to be coordinated with the local emergency medical service system."

The State of Tennessee requires the owner of the AED to create a written plan for the AED Program.  The guidelines of the AED Program written plan have been set forth in the legislation. 

Tennessee requires that the AED be properly maintained by having the pads and batteries replaced according to the manufacture's guidelines and to have the organization's staff trained in CPR and AED use.  The local EMS should be notified that an AED has been placed and the location of the AED.
