A04594 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A4594A
 
SPONSOR: Gottfried
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the public health law, in relation to hospice residence in-patient beds   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To allow all hospice residences beds to be used for in-patient services.   SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:. Amend Public Health Law § 4002 to permit up to 100% of a hospice resi- dence's beds to be used for in-patient care.   JUSTIFICATION: Current statute allows hospice residences to use 25% of their beds for inpatient services that require medical intervention, such as uncon- trolled vomiting, respiratory distress, fracture and wound care, symptom monitoring, and other minor interventions to aid in the comfort of the patient. When the needs for such services exceeds the current percentage limit, the patient must be transferred to a hospital for care. Transfers between facilities are always stressful to patients. Transfers that are triggered by artificial capacity limits compromise patient care and prohibit hospices from having the flexibility to meet their patients' needs. During the Coronavirus pandemic, the Governor issued Executive Order 202.14 to allow for 100% of a hospice residence's beds to be used as general inpatient care. The order supports fundamental hospice care principles and goals for compassionate end-of-life care. This bill would make the executive order permanent.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.   EFFECTIVE DATE:. Immediately.
