2017 House Bill 4170

Senate Roll Call 429: The amendment was not adopted

To essentially remove the authority of a “health facility” to not comply with orders in a POST form on the basis of religious beliefs or moral convictions. The bill requires a facility to arrange the transfer of a patient to another facility when this applies, but the amendment would impose a mandate for the facility to comply if it was unable to find another medical facility or professional willing or able to take on the patient or comply with the order.
