Testimony on Senate Bill 303

Senate Bill 303

Summary: Testimony "in opposition to Senate Bill 303 which concerns the rights of access by residents in city and county homes for the aged and in county hospitals. As the State's Public Health agency, we are concerned about the impact this bill will have on infectious disease spread in Kansas. ... In a situation where SB 303 were in effect, a resident that is infected with a disease that could be transmitted by aerosol (tuberculosis, measles, mumps) would be allowed to refuse an isolation or quarantine order and still receive individuals in their room or other meeting locations. This would put the visitor and all individuals who come into contact with them at risk. If this outbreak becomes widespread, the impact on local health resources, like doctors' offices, clinics and hospitals, are threatened and the overall ability for the state to respond is strained. For this reason, SB 303 does not make good public health sense."
