Major HCA Legislative Priority Advances

The state legislature’s Joint Committee on Public Health has favorably reported out Senate Bill 860, An Act Relative to Home Health Aides.

The proposal is a major legislative priority of the Home Care Alliance and would refine the Commonwealth’s Nurse Practice Act (NPA) to allow appropriate nurse delegation practices to include delegation of medication administered by home health aides in the home setting.

More information will follow soon, along with advocacy action, so be sure to check back.
