BILL NUMBER:S7701

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the education law, in relation to
administering tests to detect or screen for tuberculosis infections

PURPOSE OF THE BILL:

This bill would allow registered nurses to administer purified protein
derivative.(PPD) tests or other tests to detect or screen for
tuberculosis infections.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 of the bill amends section 6909 of the education law to
allow a nurse practitioner to prescribe and order a non-patient
specific regiment to a registered professional nurse to administer
purified protein derivative (PPD) tests or other tests to detect or
screen for tuberculosis infections.

Section 2 of the bill amends section 6527 of the education law to
allow a licensed physician to prescribe and order a non-patient
specific regiment to a registered professional nurse to administer
purified protein derivative (PPD) tests or other tests to detect or
screen for tuberculosis infections.

Section 3 of the bill relates to the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:

Chapter 221 of the Laws of 2002 allowed registered professional nurses
to administer purified protein derivative (PPD) tests to detect or
screen for tuberculosis. However, there are other tests used to detect
or screen for tuberculosis infections that may be more effective. This
legislation would allow registered professional nurses to administer
those other tests without a patient specific order from a nurse
practitioner or licensed physician.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

New bill

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE:

None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect on the ninetieth day after it shall have
become law.
