Nursing homes; report direct care service hours. Requires the Board of Health to promulgate regulations requiring nursing homes to report quarterly to the Department of Health the average number of direct care service hours provided by certified nursing assistants, licensed practical nurses, licensed vocational nurses, and registered nurses to each resident, based on payroll information reported to the Internal Revenue Service for positions that, in whole or in part, provide direct care services, beginning January 1, 2010. This bill also requires that such regulations define direct care services, establish procedures for quarterly reporting, and establish procedures for making information reported available to the public.
