HB18-1294 - Committee Discussion Only


11:07:34 AM  

Senator Crowder, bill sponsor, presented House Bill 18-1294.  The bill continues the regulation of nursing home administrators by the Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA) through September 1, 2023.  The program is currently scheduled to repeal on July 1, 2018.  In addition, the bill requires nursing home administrators to report conduct by employees that constitutes a felony to law enforcement and any relevant occupational board that regulates that employee's profession.  Failure to report such criminal conduct constitutes grounds for disciplinary action.  It also requires that votes on disciplinary matters by the Board of Examiners of Nursing Home Administrators be recorded in the publicly available minutes and indicate how each board member voted.
