On July 1, 2019, SB 1152 requires hospitals to have a written plan for coordinating services and referrals for homeless patients. Successful implementation will hinge upon working with your regional health care and social service agencies to ensure appropriate homeless patient discharge. Further, the law requires that hospitals maintain a log of homeless patients discharged and the destinations to which they were released after discharge. 

CHA staff will explain the intricacies of SB 1152 and a hospital representative will share insights on the development of their hospital’s plan and the steps they have taken toward compliance.
