Nursing Home-Informed Consent


Amends the Nursing Home Care Act. Provides that the maximum possible period for informed consent to administration of psychotropic medication shall be until: a change in the prescription occurs, either as to type of psychotropic medication or an increase in the dosage, unless the physician's order provides for a change in the type of medication or an increase in dosage (rather that as to type of psychotropic medication or dosage); or a resident's care plan changes. Requires informed consent to be sought from (rather than by) a resident's guardian of the person if one has been named by a court of competent jurisdiction. Effective immediately.
