NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A5848
 
SPONSOR: Wallace
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the public health law, in relation to providing informa- tion on where a list of violations and other actions taken against the facility can be found   PURPOSE: The purpose of this bill is to increase transparency regarding a resi- dential health care facility's compliance with laws and regulations.   SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: This bill would require residential health care facilities to provide residents and their families with a document that includes information on how potential residents and families can find information on complaints, citations, inspections, enforcement actions, and penalties taken against the facility.   JUSTIFICATION: The legislature held public hearings on the impact of COVID-19 on resi- dential health care facilities, which revealed that many residents and their families are not aware of the how to access information maintained by the Department of Health on residential health care facilities and their compliance with applicable laws and regulations. This bill would increase transparency by requiring residential health care facilities to provide residents and their families with information that guides them to where to locate information online that will be critical to families seeking to make informed decisions about appropriate placement in a residential health care facility.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: This is a new bill.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None   EFFECTIVE DATE: Sixty days succeeding enactment.
