The issue at hand is that a prescription is required to even purchase those IV supplies let alone, administer them. It's a HUGE deal if a patient is discharged or walks out of a hospital with even a port in. Therefore, if you do these types of things while not on duty, it becomes practicing medicine WITHOUT a license since EMS personnel function under an MD's license while ON DUTY.
You just DON'T DO IT. No exceptions and the news has nothing to report, period!!
