CHA has released its 2021 Report on State Legislation, which hospitals can use as they navigate the nearly 800 bills the governor signed into law this year.
Designed to help hospitals understand the implications of and comply with the bills that will have the biggest impact on their facilities, the report also serves as a reference tool for the broad health care-related legislative activity that occurred this year.
Hospital leadership teams are encouraged to review and share the report so they can take any necessary steps to implement new requirements.
Statutory changes become effective Jan. 1, 2022, unless otherwise noted. Each measure is categorized by subject and indicates which hospital team members might be involved in compliance. In addition, the laws are indexed by author, bill number, and staff role
