Bill Summary

Beginning January 1, 2025, for services or procedures for which informed consent is required and that are being provided or performed in a licensed health-care facility, the bill requires a health-care provider (provider) providing or performing the service or procedure and the provider obtaining informed consent, if a different provider, to disclose to patients, in writing and through the wearing of a photo identification badge when in a patient's presence, the following identification information relevant to the service or procedure provided or performed:

  • The provider's name;
  • The provider's employer and job title;
  • The provider's academic degree, credentials, or training; and
  • The provider's professional credential issued by the department of regulatory agencies or a professional board or commission.

Willful or repeated failure to comply with this requirement constitutes unprofessional conduct or grounds for discipline under the law governing the provider's professional license, certificate, or registration.

In addition, the bill requires that health-care facilities licensed or certified in this state require that health-care providers comply with the identification and badge requirements.

(Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced.)
