(e) Prescriptions, certificates and medical prescriptions may be issued by a licensed medical assistant, as provided in this subdivision, when mandated by the supervisory physician. A medical assistant works under the supervision of a licensed physician responsible for the delivery of the medical assistant and the overall care of the patient. The medical assistant may have more than one supervisory physician; However, there must be a clearly designated and available supervisory physician at all times.
