It’s 2024, Is Your Facility Compliant With Health and Safety Code (HSC) §1261.4?

In 2022, AB 749 was passed into law, requiring all nursing home medical directors in California to be Certified Medical Directors.  Certification will help ensure that every medical director in California is prepared to provide effective oversight of quality and safety in their nursing homes. However, during a recent call with CDPH, CALTCM learned that hundreds of California nursing homes have yet to complete form HS 215A in relation to the required reporting under Health & Safety Code (HSC) §1261.4.

Has your facility complied and submitted HS 215A to report your medical director’s status? If not, it's not too late.  We created a webpage to help you stay compliant with HSC §1261.4.

In addition, CALTCM has CME programs to help your medical director obtain the additional hours needed for their CMD certification; our acclaimed Leadership and Management in Geriatrics (LMG) course will be presented virtually June 6-8, and the 50th Annual Meeting, the 2024 CALTCM Summit for Excellence, will be hosted September 27-28 in Napa, CA, with a special Gala on Thursday, September 26th to celebrate our 50th Annual Meeting.
