2013 was a busy year for state-level legislative, regulatory and legal efforts affecting the medical specialty of anesthesiology. The Department of State Affairs is already gearing up for 2014 and reviewing what happened in 2013 is the perfect place to begin.
States with legislation that would require physician supervision of anesthesia included New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Tennessee. Additionally, many states considered Truth in Advertising legislation with Maine, Maryland, Nevada and Texas seeing their Truth in Advertising bills signed into law earlier this year. It is exciting to see so many states finding success with this legislation that helps keep patients informed about the health care professionals providing their care.
