SCS/SB 1182 - This act modifies the law relating to health care professionals under the Board of Registration for the Healing Arts.
A new Section allows persons licensed under Chapter 334, RSMo, to apply to the Board for inactive status. Upon approval, the licensee will be placed on an inactive status list. An inactive licensee or one who has retired from the profession may not practice, except on him or herself or on immediate family but may not prescribe controlled substances. An inactive licensee may, however, continue to use his or her professional title. During an inactive period, a licensee will not be required to comply with continuing education requirements. A licensee may return to active status by notifying the Board, paying fees, and completing reinstatement requirements (Section 334.002).
Current law allows physicians to enter into collaborative
practice agreements with registered professional nurses, but
prohibits the Board from taking action against a physician for
acts arising out of such an agreement. This act allows the Board
to take action against a physician for health care services
delegated to a nurse. Language allowing for the expungement of
records is also clarified (Section 334.104 ).
