NH Law for Home Care Clients Bill of Rights and Discharge Notice In Effect

In 2013, the New Hampshire Legislature made significant changes to home care-related sections of RSA 151, the Health Facilities Licensing statue.  Senate Bill 87 revised the Home Care Clients’ Bill of Rights and created new notification requirements for home care discharges. These new laws took effect on January 1, 2014 and apply to all home care agencies licensed in New Hampshire.  The Home Care Association of New Hampshire has developed  a 30-minute webinar entitled “Changes to NH’s Home Care Clients’ Bill of Rights and Discharge Law” to educate all providers on the change.  This pre recorded educational session provides information regarding the rationale behind the legislation as well as reviews the statutory changes resulting from SB 87 so that home care agencies have a better understanding of how to adapt their policies and procedures.  Print materials are also provided.  This webinar, free to members and for a fee for non menbers, will be available for six months. Contact Chole for details on logging into the webinar. Gina Balkus, CEO of the Home Care Association of New Hampshire
