A07181 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A7181
 
SPONSOR: Paulin (MS)
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the public health law, in relation to an informational leaflet relating to safe sleep   PURPOSE: To increase public awareness and educate maternity patients about safe sleep practice   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section one amends section 2803-j of the public health law by adding a new subdivision 1-d to provide that the informational leaflet provided by hospitals and birth centers to maternity patients under this section shall also include the recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics relating to safe sleep, including sleep space and sleep posi- tion, and discussion on how to reduce the risk of infant death through safe sleep practices. The information described in this subparagraph may take the form of a video in lieu of a leaflet. Section two provides the effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: Each year in New York State, babies die from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and accidents during sleep. The Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS) has noticed that an increased number of fatalities reported to the Statewide Central Register has been occur- ring in children, mainly infants, while they are sleeping. To promote safe sleeping practices for infants, the State Department of Health (DOH) and OCFS have worked cooperatively on developing brochures and other public information materials on safe sleep. DOH has devoted a page on its website to SIDS and safe sleep. It is critical, however, that efforts to prevent infant deaths due to unsafe sleeping practices include direct outreach to birth parents. We currently already require hospitals and birth centers to provide infor- mation to maternity patients regarding shaken baby syndrome, maternal depression and statistics on maternity-related procedures such as cesa- rean sections performed at such hospitals and birth centers. This bill would simply add to such information. With this legislation, we can continue to build awareness of the risks associated with unsafe sleeping conditions and help parents provide safe sleeping environments for infants so that we can prevent another terri- ble tragedy.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Nominal.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect on the one hundred twenti- eth day after it shall have become a law; provided that any rule or regulation necessary for the timely implementation of this act on its effective date shall be promulgated on or before such effective date.
