Nurses Clock In At Home As A Nurse Resource Provider...
Nurses, California Has A New State Law; AB 1133/Chapter # 490
Our Assembly Bill 1133 became California State Law on October 2nd, 2013. The state bill requires that, when determining the placement of a foster child who is medically fragile, “Priority Consideration” will be given to the placement with a foster parent who is also an independent nurse provider via EPSDT private duty nursing programs. AIW created this law for the growing medically fragile foster care population including micro-preemies, infants, children and youths. If they don’t come to us Nurses first, they are passed back and forth between Group Homes, Institutional Care Settings, and into and out of under-educated and poorly supported foster homes. This is a childhood no child should endure, let alone out medically fragile foster care population.
