Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Nursing Home Care Act. Provides that if the Department of Public Health fails to provide a written explanation of the reason or reasons why evidence or arguments submitted for an informal dispute resolution were insufficient to refute the informal dispute resolution findings within 30 days of receiving the informal dispute resolution, then the alleged licensure violation shall be withdrawn from the official record and no penalty shall be imposed. Effective immediately.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Provides that if the Department of Public Health fails to provide a written explanation of the reason or reasons why evidence or arguments submitted for an informal dispute resolution were insufficient to refute the informal dispute resolution findings within 75 (rather than 30) days of receiving the informal dispute resolution, then the alleged licensure violation shall be withdrawn from the official record and no penalty shall be imposed.

House Floor Amendment No. 2
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the language of the introduced bill with the following changes: Provides that when a facility submits comments refuting licensure findings (rather than comments to licensure findings), it shall be considered an informal dispute resolution if the findings were not submitted for an informal dispute resolution pursuant to specified federal protocols. Provides that if the Department of Public Health fails to provide a written explanation of the reason or reasons why evidence or arguments submitted for an informal dispute resolution were insufficient to refute the informal dispute resolution findings within 60 (rather than 30) days of receiving the informal dispute resolution, then the alleged licensure violation shall be cited, but no penalty shall be imposed (rather than shall be withdrawn from the official record).
