This bill provides that a hospital is to require a health care professional, at the time of taking a medical history or performing a physical examination of a patient admitted to an emergency room or the hospital, to include a notation in the patient's medical record indicating, if applicable, that the patient has Alzheimer's disease and related disorders. The notation is to be prominently displayed in the record. It is intended that this bill will enable hospitals to better care for patients with Alzheimer's disease and related disorders, and help prevent these patients from wandering away from hospitals.
