     4  consent  to  his  or  her  health  care,  a person legally authorized to
     5  consent on behalf of the resident, shall have  the  right  to  be  fully
     6  informed  by  his  or  her  physician,  or other health or mental health
     7  provider of his or her medical condition and proposed medication, treat-
     8  ment and services, unless medically contraindicated, and to refuse medi-
     9  cation, treatment or services after being fully informed of  the  conse-
    10  quences of such actions; provided that an operator acting reasonably and
    11  in  good faith, shall not be held liable or penalized for complying with

    24  have become a law.
