  2  7 designated in a written job description.  Such procedures may
  2  8 be performed after the patient is observed by and when the
  2  9 emergency medical care provider is under the supervision of
  2 10 the physician, physician assistant, or registered nurse,
  2 11 including when the registered nurse is not acting in the
