This bill requires each pharmacy or other provider of oxygen or an oxygen delivery system, which has supplied oxygen or an oxygen delivery system to a patient, for use in the patient's residence, on an order from a licensed health care provider, to prepare and adopt an emergency action plan, in accordance with requirements to be established by the Director of the Division of Consumer Affairs in the Department of Law and Public Safety. The purpose of the emergency action plan, to be adopted by each pharmacy or other provider of oxygen or an oxygen delivery system, is to set forth the procedures that it will follow, in the event of a public health emergency, in order to: ensure the availability of oxygen to that patient, to the maximum extent practicable; and be responsive to inquiries or requests made by, or on behalf of, the patient concerning the patient's need for, or receipt of, oxygen or an oxygen delivery system by the pharmacy or other provider. The Director of the Division of Consumer Affairs is to notify all pharmacies in the State of the requirements of this bill, and to provide public notice to other providers of oxygen or oxygen delivery systems of these requirements in newspapers throughout the State. The Director of the Division of Consumer Affairs is to adopt regulations, in consultation with the Commissioner of Health and the Director of the State Office of Emergency Management, to effectuate the purposes of the bill. The bill takes effect on the first day of the seventh month following enactment, but authorizes the Director of the Division of Consumer Affairs to take prior administrative action as necessary for its implementation.
