Proposed Regulation – New Jersey State Board of Respiratory Care

NEWARK – The New Jersey State Board of Respiratory Care is proposing substantial changes upon adoption to the proposed amendments to N.J.A.C. 13:44F-3.3.
The Board proposed amendments to N.J.A.C. 13:44F-3.3 on July 5, 2016, at 48 N.J.R. 1354(a), to remove the requirement for a follow-up visit by a respiratory care practitioner within 24 hours of delivery of nebulizer compressors, concentrators, and medical gas cylinders.  In response to the comments received, the Board is proposing substantial changes to the amendments.  The Board proposes to retain the follow-up visit and extend to 72 hours the period of time for the follow-up visit to occur, and to clarify the type of equipment covered by the rule.

The proposed notice of substantial changes, and information on how to submit a comment by August 18, 2017, can be viewed here.
