SB 482 advances

Today, SB 482 by Sen. Jack Latvala (R-16), The Nursing Home Quality Efficiency Act, passed favorably out of the Senate Committee on Health Regulation, despite opposition from trial attorneys and other opponents who are misinformed about this issue. Neither SB 482 or its House companion, HB 621, impact resident care; they simply eliminate requirements that duplicate federal law, with some of those requirements being as much as ten years out of date. FHCA will keep you updated on the progress of these important bills, which put patients ahead of paperwork, as they continue making their way through the process.
