If you just can’t get excited about high food and gasoline prices, maybe you can get excited about a measure on the November 2022 ballot.

 

This one sounds familiar.

                              

If it is passed by voters if would require on licensed medical professioinal to be on-site at kidney dialysis clinics.

 

That could be a physician, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant, with six months’ relevant experience.

 

Due to ongoing labor shortages in the health care industry, it would allow a licensed medical profession to be available through telehealth.

 

Clinics would have to report their infection data to the state government, and clinics could not refuse treatment to a patient based on that patient’s source of payment.

 

If it becomes law it will cost California taxpayers tens of millions of dollars annually, according to the California Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance.
