A07532 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A7532
 
SPONSOR: Gottfried
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the public health law, in relation to automated external defibrillators   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: This bill would clarify that any health care practitioner who has the necessary experience, prescribing authority, and scope of practice, may enter into a collaborative agreement with a person or entity seeking to possess and/or operate an automated external defibrillator.   SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 1 of the bill amends public health law section 3000-b to define health care practitioner and clarify that any professional who meets this definition may enter into a collaborative agreement with a public access defibrillation provider, in order to facilitate availability. Section 2 is the effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: Current law allows individuals or entities to purchase and operate auto- mated external defibrillators (AEDs) if the individual or entity has a collaborative agreement with a physician or a hospital. There are many other qualified health care practitioners in New York, such as physician assistants and nurse practitioners, who may be able to facilitate AED access and thereby increase AED availability statewide. This legislation continues the same high safety standards including all training and reporting requirements, while expanding the availability of automated external defibrillators to such practitioners.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None   EFFECTIVE DATE: One hundred eighty days after becoming law, provided that effective immediately the commissioners of health and education shall make regu- lations and take other actions necessary to implement the act on such date.
