OFA Fiscal Note

Explanation

The bill establishes requirements of central service technicians (CST) and limits persons from engaging in CST practice without certification by certain professional organizations. It also requires a health care facility that employs a CST to submit, upon the request of the Department of Public Health (DPH), documentation demonstrating compliance with these CST requirements. It is anticipated that DPH can undertake the provisions of the bill without incurring a fiscal impact.
