Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Ultrasound Administration Act. Requires a person that issues an order or a referral for the administration of an ultrasound upon a pregnant woman to be licensed to practice medicine in all of its branches, licensed as an advanced practice nurse, or licensed as a certified nurse midwife. Provides that an order or referral for the administration of an ultrasound shall not be issued for entertainment purposes or for any other purpose which is not warranted by the condition of the patient as determined by the treating physician, advanced practice nurse, or certified nurse midwife. Provides that any person, except a person authorized to issue an order or a referral pursuant to the Act, who administers an ultrasound upon a pregnant woman without an order or referral, shall be guilty of a Class A misdemeanor.

House Floor Amendment No. 1
Allows a person to issue an order or referral for the administration of an ultrasound upon a pregnant woman if he or she is: (i) licensed to practice as an advanced practice nurse under the Nursing and Advanced Practice Nursing Act and has a collaborative agreement with a collaborating physician that authorizes an order or referral under the Act, or (ii) licensed to practice as a physician assistant under the Physician Assistant Practice Act of 1987, and has been delegated the authority to perform services under the Act by his or her supervising physician. Deletes a provision allowing a person to issue an order or referral for the administration of an ultrasound upon a pregnant woman if he or she is licensed to practice as a certified nurse midwife as provided under the Nursing and Advanced Practice Nursing Act.
