The NPA has received numerous inquiries about LB 37 and how it impacts hospital practice with regard to the 2005 Declaratory Order (or Raymond Ruling) as issued by Nebraska's past Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Richard Raymond, in 2005. Al Klassmeyer, Nebraska Hospital Association (NHA), Vice President, asked the Nebraska Department of Health & Human Services (NDHHS) for clarity on this issue. NDHHS responded to NHA's request stating that the Raymond Ruling remains in effect
and provisions of the Ruling will be put into regulations later this year. Click here
