NO FISCAL IMPACT

There is no fiscal impact anticipated from the expansion of mandatory reporting of healthcare-associated-infections to include the number and type of infections acquired in a hospital or other facility that resulted in death, serious injury or serious illness. Similarly, there is no fiscal impact anticipated from the requirement that the Department of Public Health provide links on its website to submitted annual reports and to the Medicare Hospital Compare website.

The preceding Fiscal Impact statement is prepared for the benefit of the members of the General Assembly, solely for the purposes of information, summarization and explanation and does not represent the intent of the General Assembly or either chamber thereof for any purpose. In general, fiscal impacts are based upon a variety of informational sources, including the analyst's professional knowledge.
