MHCA Testifies on Temporary Nurse Agency Rulemaking

Last week, MHCA President & CEO Angela Westhoff submitted testimony on the proposed rules related to last session's passed bill LD 451 An Act to Ensure Transparent and Accountable Temporary Nurse Agencies. 

The rule reflects the following requirements of the statute:
  • Increases the registration fee;
  • Places requirements for annual reporting on registered Temporary Nurse Agencies (TNAs);
  • Authorizes the Department to issue financial penalties to TNAs in certain circumstances;
  • Places record-keeping and access to records requirements on TNAs; and 
  • Establishes employee quality assurance measures for TNAs.
You can read the proposed rule in detail on the DHHS rulemaking page and MHCA's testimony here.
