The Home Care Alliance is applauding the state Senate’s passage of the Nurse Delegation bill (S.860) and is urging the House of Representatives to follow suit.
S. 860 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.
Thanks to the advocacy of HCA members and the work of supporting organizations, the bill moves one step closer to the Governor’s desk and lobbying efforts are now directed at the House.
