Pending Concerns

AB 1895 (Weber, D-La Mesa) Details

Passed the Assembly floor on May 21. July 3 hearing in the Senate Health Committee.

AB 1895 would require general acute care hospitals whose labor and delivery (L&D) units are at risk of closure within six months to report specified information to the California Department of Public Health, Department of Health Care Access and Information, and the chairs of the Senate and Assembly Health committees. This information includes the number of medical staff and employees working in the maternity ward and the number of deliveries per month over the past 12 months. The bill would also require hospitals that have L&D units at risk of closure to provide public notice of the potential closure and to post that notice on their websites 90 days in advance of the proposed closure. CHA continues to work with Dr. Weber’s office to address hospitals’ concerns.
