AB 1164 (Lowenthal, D-Long Beach) Details

Two-year bill

AB 1164 would require hospitals to create a protocol for emergency department crowding. Hospitals would be required to determine the range of crowding scores that constitute each category of the crowding scale and — with some exceptions — calculate and record a crowding score every four hours, at a minimum. The bill would require implementation and filing of the protocol with the Department of Health Care Access and Information by Jan. 1, 2025.
