NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A1010A
 
SPONSOR: Bronson
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the public health law, in relation to directing the department of health to make publicly available the results of all inspections conducted by such department in nursing homes and other residential health care facilities in the state during the COVID-19 state disaster emergency and thereafter   PURPOSE: This bill will make public all inspections conducted on nursing homes and other residential health care facilities during the COVID-19 crisis. It will also require the Department of Health to conduct and publish a study documenting the best practices in these facilities for preventing and containing outbreaks of COVID-19.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1: Requires the department of health to publish online all inspections conducted in nursing homes and residential healthcare facil- ities during the COVID-19 crisis. The department will redact any patient-identifying information from such reports and provide an expla- nation for such redactions. The department is also required to regularly release the results of any future inspections conducted during the COVID-19 emergency. Section 2: Sets the effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: The Department of Health has conducted many inspections in nursing homes and other residential care facilities across New York as a result of the COVID-19 public health emergency. In order for New Yorkers to make sound decisions and for the state legislature to thoroughly analyze the state's performance in order to make policy changes, these reports must be available to the public for review. This bill will provide transpar- ency in inspections conducted during the crisis by requiring that the department post all such inspection reports on its website, with appro- priate redaction to protect any patient-identifying information. Addi- tional visits shall be made to nursing home as needed to determine whether violation or deficiencies have been corrected.   FISCAL IMPACT: Minimal.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.   EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately.
