SB 111 - This act would change the law relating to podiatry. The name of the current State Board of Chiropody or Podiatry would be changed to the State Board of Podiatric Medicine. All members on the current State Board of Chiropody or Podiatry shall automatically become members of the State Board of Podiatric Medicine.
The name of the State Board of Podiatry Fund is renamed the State Board of Podiatric Medicine Fund and shall retain all funds currently in the State Board of Podiatry Fund.
All reference to "chiropody" is removed from the chapter.
The definition of the word "podiatrist" shall not apply to administration of general anesthetics, amputation of the foot or bone surgery on children under one year old. The term "human foot" is expanded to include the ankle and the soft tissue which insert into the foot as well as the foot.
A person retiring from the practice of podiatry would be required to file an affidavit which states the date the person retired from practice and other relevant information to such retirement. The person would need to re-register with the State Board of Podiatric Medicine, if that person decides to reenter the practice of podiatry.
