Doctors and Nurses
AB 374 by Assembly member Patty Berg (D-Santa Rosa) was amended to clarify the format for requests for life-ending doses of prescription drugs. The measure would permit doctors to write such prescriptions to terminally ill patients in some cases (Bill Text, 5/14). The bill was re-referred to the Assembly Appropriations Committee (Bill Status, 5/14).This is part of the California Healthline Daily Edition, a summary of health policy coverage from major news organizations.
