BILL NUMBER:S5159 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the public health law, in relation to requiring epinephrine auto-injector devices at children's overnight, summer day and traveling summer camps PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: This bill will require children's overnight, summer day and traveling summer camps to stock epinephrine auto-injector devices. SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section one amends paragraph (a) of subdivision 1 of section 3000-c of the public health law, as amended by chapter 350 of the laws of 2001 to delete references to children's summer day camps. Section two amends the public health law by adding a new section 1392-b that defines "emergency health care provider." The section requires that all entities operating children's summer camps must maintain a collaborative agreement with an emergency health care provide and keep epinephrine auto-injectors on the premises. This section outlines the requirements for this collaborative agreement. Regulations regarding possession and use of epinephrine auto-injector devices are laid out. Use of such devices is considered first aid or emergency treatment for the purpose of any statute relating to liability.
