Most laws that made it through the Kentucky General Assembly earlier this year take effect on Thursday, June 29. The exceptions were those that had emergency clauses that triggered them to take effect immediately and those that specified later effective dates.
Of special note for hospitals are the Family Caregiver Act, which allows an inpatient to designate a caregiver to be recorded in the medical record and notified prior to the patient’s discharge, as well as the mammography bill, which will require a notification on certain results which involve dense breast tissue.
