STATE OF THINGS LEGISLATIVE

CAMILLE GIGLIO

Dear Friends: I have finally succeeded in getting a (long) list of legislation up on our Callifeadvocates blogsite. They are mostly health care bills which we feel need close observation since they can be gutted and amended or just amended at any point.

We get daily notices about gutted and amended bills and dates for hearings for bills.

Each bill listed on our blogsite has a link, through the bill number, to the full wording of the bill which you are welcome to link to. We have just listed the bare bones information since there are so many bills.

Please go to www.callifeadvocates.org/blog. Then look on the right side about mid-point and you will find the words Legislation: state, federal. So far it is only the state bills that we have listed.

We will begin after Easter Week to write more complete reports on the bills in separate reports.

______________

LEGISLATION ON HEALTH CARE ISSUES.

The following seven (7) bills all deal with the elderly and/or residential care facilities or end-of-life issues. Of the seven 4 are sponsored by Ca. Advocates for Nursing Home Reform-CANHR. www.canhr.org. This group wrote a worthwhile critique of the POLST form appearing to be neutral on its intended results, but, was, in fact, supportive of patient autonomy in choosing to control their life’s last days.

Our concern in most of these bills is the hidden agenda of further promotion of signature gathering of naive and unsuspecting elderly residents of facilities on POLST forms. Some of these bills appear to be offered as a result of at least two incidences in which care facilities and their elderly residents were abandoned by owners and employees when the money ran out.

Compassion and Choices, the major promoter of the POLST has received several million in federal dollars to stimulate additional training of employees on how to encourage acceptance of the form.

SB 911 by Marty Block, (916)-651-4939. Requires additional training hours for employees of residential care facilities without stipulating to the type of training.

SB1357, Lois Wolk, (D), 916-323-2304. Enacts the state POLST Registry Act which would be a statewide registry and monitoring program of anyone who signs a POLST form. This data could be transferred to any of a number of government entities and emergency services.

AB1523, Toni Adkins, (D-SD) Residential Care Facilities: Liability Insurance.

AB1572, Susan Eggman, (D-SD), Residential Care Facilities: Resident Councils.

Requires establishment of resident councils and amends the rules of developing these councils for already established facilities. Removes family members but adds community stakeholders and tighter rules regarding avenues for submission of complaints or suggestions for changes in accommodating needs of residents.

AB2139, Susan Eggman, (D-SD), 916-319-2013, End-Of-Life Care: Patient Notification.

Mandates establishment of a definition of “terminal Illness.” authorizes a person with power of attorney for a terminally ill (as defined) patient to be notified of this diagnosis and provided with “comprehensive information and counseling regarding legal end-of-life options.”

It’s interesting that no organization has been identified as a supporter or sponsor as of this date. It must be presumed that Compassion and Choices or other agencies of the death and dying proponents is the sponsor.

SB1322. Ed Hernandez, (D) 916-651-4924, California Health Care Quality Improvement and Cost Containment Commission. Authorizes the Governor to establish this commission to regulate and contain costs of delivering medical services. Care facilities will be rated according to their ability to contain costs and accountability while developing innovative cost containment measures.

Cost containment can be understood to be the engine driving restriction of dollars and employee time spent on care of financially burdensome patients.

Members of this commission shall represent the usual stakeholders, labor, business, health care practitioners, hospital industry reps, health insurance, legal community health care economist, the Secy of Ca. Health and Human Services and the Ex. Director of Covered California.

Issues this commission will cover are: assessing California’s health care needs, improving “quality” of care and “efficiency.” disease management, wellness, prevention and “other innovative programs to keep people healthy while reducing costs and improving health outcomes.. and finally. “efficient utilization of prescription drugs and technology.”

This all sounds more like expanding the net profit of this new industry by dropping expensive and innovative treatments to senior citizens.
than it does expanding and improving the lives of the residents elderly and ill as well as healthy.

ACR 125, John Perez, 916-319-2053. Setting aside a date every April to recognize April as Donate Life month and signing up for organ donations through the DMV.

Take away God, all respect for civil laws, all regard for even the most necessary institutions disappears; justice is scouted; the very liberty that belongs to the law of nature is trodden underfoot; and men go so far as to destroy the very structure of the family, which is the first and firmest foundation of the social structure.
