Hi folks, want to post a correction: the reading of the bill is on the 15th and they will be taking testimony on the 22nd.

IT would be nice to hear an example of how this law would be implemented; ie., on what type of pt.? Is it only the mentally ill ?? Would this be appropriate for someone who may be in his or her home and need care because of self-negligence and therefore could be involuntarily taken to the hospital and admitted??
What will this bill do to help APRNs???
