 5                                 

 6  The Committee Substitute revises the circumstances under which
    a nurse registry must provide the services of a registered
 7  nurse to patients. When a nurse registry refers a certified
    nursing assistant or home health aide to a patient's home, the
 8  nurse registry must advise the patient, the patient's family,
    or any other person acting on behalf of the patient that a
 9  registered nurse is available to make monthly visits to the
    patient's home for an additional cost.
