Reporting And Data

The Nevada State Board of Health has approved final regulations to implement the provisions of Assembly Bill 474, the Controlled Substance Abuse Prevention Act. The regulations now lay out procedures for reporting cases or suspected cases of drug overdose to the State of Nevada's Chief Medical Officer. A provider of health care shall report the name, address, telephone number, sex, race, ethnicity, and date of birth of the patient who suffered the drug overdose or suspected drug overdose, the medical record number of the patient, the date on which the overdose or suspected overdose occurred, a statement of the disposition of the patient, and the ICD10 code(s) corresponding to the overdose or suspected overdose.

Although many of these requirements apply to individual medical professionals and other types of hospitals and health care facilities, the information is presented solely to support Critical Access Hospitals. The reporting requirements and legal mandates on this site are not an exhaustive list and Nevada Rural Hospital Partners, Inc. bears no responsibility or liability for any hospitals' or providers' failure to comply with Federal or State laws or regulations.
