No Patient Left Alone Act is Moving Forward in this Legislative Session

(MISSOURINET) – What’s being called “No Patient Left Alone Act” is moving forward in this legislative session.

The measure was approved by the House and moved to the Senate Wednesday.

In response to hospital and long-term care facilities visitor restrictions during the pandemic, the law would guarantee patients the option of having select visitors.
