Several NYS health care associations have provided, or are in the process of providing model hospital and nursing home policies and forms as a service to their members, to assist facilities to implement the law.

The polices and forms are based on materials created for the associations by Tracy Miller, Esq., former Executive Director of the Task Force on Life and the Law, and Robert N. Swidler, Esq., former General Counsel to the Task Force and current Counsel to Northeast Health.

To obtain the model forms or policies (members only), or for more information about them, contact one of the following associations:

General New York Hospital Association (GNYHA)

Healthcare Association of New York State (HANYS)

NYS Association of Homes and Services for the Aging (NYAHSA)
