HB12-1058 - Health Department Infant Eye Prophylaxis

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning The Requirement That The Department Of Public Infant Eye Health And Environment Provide Prophylaxis.

Currently, the department of public health and environment is required to name, approve, and provide, free of charge, a prophylaxis to be used in treating the eyes of newly born infants. The bill deletes these requirements and requires the health care provider in charge of the birth to treat an infant with a prophylaxis that is in accordance with the current medical standard of care. The bill also deletes the penalty provision for a health care provider who violates the statutes relating to infant eye prophylaxis.
