I'm going to take a wild guess it's due to physicians and nurses taking an oath not to hurt anyone. Just a guess, mind you.
Seriously, a physician, no matter how he felt about capital punishment, would be in danger of losing his medical license if his name was revealed.
Currently in Alabama, paramedics start the IV and wardens start the drip.
