	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   SB 294, as amended, Negrete McLeod.  Healing arts.
  Department of Consumer Affairs: regulatory boards.
 
   (1) Existing law provides for the licensure and regulation of
various healing arts licensees by various boards, as defined, within
the Department of Consumer Affairs, including the California Board of
Occupational Therapy, the Physician Assistant Committee of the
Medical Board of California, and the Veterinary Medical Board.
Existing law requires the committee and authorizes the Veterinary
Medical Board to appoint an executive officer. Under existing law,
those provisions regarding the California Board of Occupational
Therapy will become inoperative on July 1, 2013, and will be repealed
on January 1, 2014. Those provisions governing the Physician
Assistant Committee of the Medical Board of California and the
Veterinary Medical Board will become inoperative on July 1, 2011, and
will be repealed on January 1, 2012.  
   Under this bill, the provisions relating to the California Board
of Occupational Therapy would become inoperative and be repealed on
January 1, 2014, and the provisions concerning the Physician
Assistant Committee of the Medical Board of California and the
Veterinary Medical Board would become inoperative and be repealed on
January 1, 2013.  
   Existing law provides for the licensure and regulation of certain
healing arts licensees by the Medical Board of California and the
State Board of Optometry. Existing law authorizes these boards to
employ an executive director or appoint an executive officer,
respectively. Existing law repeals these provisions on January 1,
2013. Existing law makes the Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology
and Hearing Aid Dispensers Board responsible for the licensure of

board to appoint an executive officer. Existing law repeals these

Existing law repeals these provisions on January 1, 2011.  
   Existing law provides for the regulation of registered dispensing
opticians by the Medical Board of California and provides that the
powers and duties of the board in that regard shall be subject to
review by the Joint Committee on Boards, Commissions, and Consumer
Protection as if those provisions were scheduled to become
inoperative on July 1, 2003, and repealed on January 1, 2004. 

   This bill would make the powers and duties of the board subject to
that review as if those provisions were scheduled to be repealed on
January 1, 2014.  
   Existing law provides for the licensure and regulation of
specified healing arts licensees by the Acupuncture Board and the
Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS). Existing law authorizes the
Acupuncture Board to appoint an executive officer and requires BBS to

   Under this bill, these provisions would be repealed on January 1,
2013.  
   Existing law provides for the licensure and regulation of
registered nurses by the Board of Registered Nursing and requires the
board to appoint an executive officer. Under existing law, these
provisions are repealed on January 1, 2013.  
   This bill would instead repeal these provisions on January 1,
2012.  
   Existing law provides for the licensure and regulation of
naturopathic doctors by the Naturopathic Medicine Committee within
the Osteopathic Medical Board of California. Existing law provides
that these regulatory provisions are repealed on January 1, 2013.
 
   This bill would provide that those regulatory provisions are
repealed on January 1, 2014.  
   (2) Existing law also provides for the licensure and regulation of
various profession and vocations by boards within the department,
including, the California Board of Accountancy, the California
Architects Board, the Landscape Architects Technical Committee,
Professional Fiduciaries Bureau, the Board for Professional Engineers
and Land Surveyors, and the State Board of Guide Dogs for the Blind.
Existing law requires or authorizes, with certain exceptions, these
boards to appoint an executive officer or a registrar. With respect
to the Professional Fiduciaries Bureau, existing law authorizes the
Governor to appoint the chief of the bureau. Under existing law,
these provisions will become inoperative on July 1, 2011, and will be
repealed on January 1, 2012.  
   This bill would make these provisions, inoperative and repealed on
January 1, 2012.  
   Existing law authorizes the California Architects Board to
implement an intern development program until July 1, 2011. 

   This bill would authorize the board to implement that program
until July 1, 2012.  
   Existing law establishes in the Department of Pesticide Regulation
a Structural Pest Control Board and requires the board, with the
approval of the director of the department, to appoint a registrar.
These provisions shall become inoperative on July 1, 2011, and are
repealed on January 1, 2012.  
   This bill would make those provisions inoperative and repealed on
January 1, 2015.  
   Existing law provides for the certification and regulation of
interior designers until January 1, 2013.  
   This bill would extend the operation of these provisions to

   Existing law provides for the regulation of certified common
interest development managers and tax preparers and repeals these
provisions on January 1, 2012.  
   This bill would repeal these provisions on January 1, 2015. 

   Under existing law, there is the Contractors' State License Board
within the department and it is responsible for the licensure and
regulation of contractors and existing law requires the board to
appoint a registrar. Under existing law, these provisions are
repealed on January 1, 2011.  
   This bill would repeal these provisions on January 1, 2012. 

   Existing law provides for the licensure and regulation of
barbering and cosmetology by the Board of Barbering and Cosmetology
and existing law authorizes the board to appoint an executive
officer. Under existing law, these provisions are repealed on January

   This bill would repeal these provisions on January 1, 2014. 

   Under existing law, the practice of shorthand reporting is
regulated by the Court Reporters Board of California and existing law

   This bill would repeal these provisions January 1, 2013. 

   Under existing law, the State Athletic Commission is responsible
for licensing and regulating boxing, kickboxing, and martial arts
matches and is required to appoint an executive officer. Existing law
repeals these provisions on January 1, 2011.  
   This bill would repeal these provisions on January 1, 2012. 

   (3) Existing law, the California Private Postsecondary Education
Act of 2009, provides for the regulation of private postsecondary
educational institutions by the Bureau for Private Postsecondary
Education in the Department of Consumer Affairs. Existing law repeals
that act on January 1, 2016.  
   This bill would repeal the act on January 1, 2015.  
   Existing law provides for the regulation of healing arts licensees
by various boards within the Department of Consumer Affairs. The
department is under the control of the Director of Consumer Affairs.
 
   (1) Existing law requires certain boards within the department to
disclose on the Internet information on their respective licensees.
 
   This bill would additionally require specified healing arts boards
to disclose on the Internet information on their respective
licensees.  
   Existing law authorizes the director to audit and review, among
other things, inquiries and complaints regarding licensees,
dismissals of disciplinary cases, and discipline short of formal
accusation by the Medical Board of California and the California
Board of Podiatric Medicine.  
   This bill would additionally authorize the director to audit and
review the aforementioned activities by any of the healing arts
boards. The bill would also declare the intent of the Legislature
that the department establish an information technology system to
create and update healing arts license information and track
enforcement cases pertaining to these licensees.  
   Existing law requires a physician and surgeon, osteopathic
physician and surgeon, and a doctor of podiatric medicine to report
to his or her respective board when there is an indictment or
information charging a felony against the licensee or he or she been
convicted of a felony or misdemeanor.  
   This bill would expand that requirement to any licensee of a
healing arts board, as specified, would require these licensees to
submit a written report, and would require a report when disciplinary
action is taken against a licensee by another healing arts board or
by a healing arts board of another state.  
   Existing law requires the district attorney, city attorney, and
other prosecuting agencies to notify the Medical Board of California,
the Osteopathic Medical Board of California, the California Board of
Podiatric Medicine, the State Board of Chiropractic Examiners, and
other allied health boards and the court clerk if felony charges have
been filed against one of the board's licensees.  
   This bill would instead require that notice to be provided to any
healing arts board and the court clerk if felony charges are filed
against a licensee. By imposing additional duties on these local
agencies, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
 
   Existing law requires, within 10 days after a court judgment, the
clerk of the court to report to the appropriate board when a
licentiate has committed a crime or is liable for any death or
personal injury resulting in a specified judgment. Existing law also
requires the clerk of the court to transmit to certain boards
specified felony preliminary transcript hearings concerning a
defendant licentiate.  
   This bill would instead require the clerk of the court to report
that information and to transmit those transcripts to any described
healing arts board.  
   (2) Under existing law, healing arts licensees are regulated by
various boards and these boards are authorized to issue, deny,
suspend, and revoke licenses based on various grounds and these
boards are also authorized to take disciplinary action against their
licensees for the failure to comply with its laws and regulations.
Existing law requires or authorizes the board to appoint an executive
officer or an executive director to, among other things, perform
duties delegated by the board.  
   This bill would authorize the executive officer or the executive
director of specified healing arts licensing boards, where an
administrative action has been filed by the board to revoke the
license of a licensee and the licensee has failed to file a notice of
defense, appear at the hearing, or has agreed to surrender his or
her license, to adopt a proposed default decision or a proposed
settlement agreement. The bill would also provide that the license of
a licensee shall be suspended if the licensee is incarcerated after
the conviction of a felony and would require the board to notify the
licensee of the suspension and of his or her right to a specified
hearing. The bill would also specify the timeframes for suspending a
license under certain circumstances if the conviction was
substantially related to the qualifications, functions, or duties of
the licensee's respective board.  
   The bill would also prohibit a licensee of specified healing arts
boards from including certain provisions in an agreement to settle a
civil dispute arising from his or her practice, as specified. The
bill would make a licensee or a health care facility that fails to
comply with a patient's medical record request, as specified, within
15 days, or who fails or refuses to comply with a court order
mandating release of records, subject to civil and criminal
penalties, as specified. By creating a new crime, the bill would
impose a state-mandated local program.  
   The bill would authorize the Attorney General and his or her
investigative agents, and these healing arts boards to inquire into
any alleged violation of the laws under the board's jurisdiction and
to inspect documents subject to specified procedures. 

   The bill would require these healing arts boards to report
annually, by October 1, to the department and the Legislature certain
information, including, but not limited to, the total number of
consumer calls received by the board, the total number of complaint
forms received by the board, the total number of convictions reported
to the board, and the total number of licensees in diversion or on
probation for alcohol or drug abuse.  
   (3) Existing law establishes diversion and recovery programs to
identify and rehabilitate dentists, osteopathic physicians and
surgeons, physical therapists and physical therapy assistants,
registered nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists and intern
pharmacists, and veterinarians and registered veterinary technicians
whose competency may be impaired due to, among other things, alcohol
and drug abuse.  
   The bill would make the provisions establishing these diversion
programs inoperative on January 1, 2012.  
   Existing law makes a licentiate terminated from a diversion
program for failing to comply with the program's requirements subject
to disciplinary action by his or her respective board. 

   This bill would instead provide that the participant's license
shall be suspended until the participant petitions the board for
reinstatement of his or her license, certificate, or board approval
and is granted a probationary or unrestricted license, certificate,
or board approval. The bill would also require a third party or state
agency or private organization administering the diversion program
to report, as specified, to the program manager or chairperson any
act of substantial noncompliance, as defined, by the participant with
the program.  
   (4) Existing law, the Nursing Practice Act, provides for the
licensure and regulation of nurses by the Board of Registered
Nursing. Existing law authorizes the board to employ personnel as it
deems necessary to carry out the act's provisions, except that the
employment of personnel to provide investigative services shall be in
the Division of Investigations within the Department of Consumer
Affairs.  
   This bill would remove that limitation and would authorize the
board to employ investigators, nurse consultants, and other personnel
as it deems necessary. The bill would also specify that these
investigators have the authority of peace officers while carrying out
their board duties.  
   The bill would require the Director of Consumer Affairs, by March
1, 2010, to appoint an enforcement program monitor to serve until
October 1, 2011, who would be required to, among other things,
monitor and evaluate the board's disciplinary system and procedures.
The bill would prohibit the enforcement program monitor from
exercising authority over the board's disciplinary operations or
staff. The bill would require the enforcement program monitor, by
December 1, 2010, to submit a specified initial written report to the
board, the department, and the Legislature and to issue a final
written report by October 1, 2011.  
   Existing law provides for the certification and regulation of
nurse practitioners and nurse-midwives by the Board of Registered
Nursing and specifies requirements for qualification or certification
as a nurse practitioner. Under the act, the practice of nursing is
defined, in part, as providing direct and indirect patient care
services, as specified, including the dispensing of drugs or devices
under specified circumstances. The practice of nursing is also
described as the implementation, based on observed abnormalities, of
standardized procedures, defined as policies and protocols developed
by specified facilities in collaboration with administrators and
health professionals, including physicians and surgeons and nurses.
 
   This bill would authorize the implementation of standardized
procedures that would expand the duties of a nurse practitioner in
the scope of his or her practice, as enumerated. The bill would make
specified findings and declarations in that regard. 

   (5) The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse
local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the
state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that
reimbursement.  
   This bill would provide that with regard to certain mandates no
reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason.
 
   With regard to any other mandates, this bill would provide that,
if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains
costs so mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall
be made pursuant to the statutory provisions noted above. 
   Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: yes.
State-mandated local program:  yes   no  .
