Here are the most recent health care related regulatory developments as published in the New Jersey Register on November 6, 2017:

  • On November 6, 2017 at 49 NJR 3481, the State Board of Medical Examiners published notice of its proposal of amendments to its rules regarding the delegation of the administration of subcutaneous and intramuscular injections and performance of venipuncture to certified medical assistants. The proposal would amend existing regulations regarding education for certified medical assistants to reduce required clock hours from 600 to 330.  The proposed amendments would also amend the definition of the term “certified medical assistant” to recognize new entities that train certified medical assistants and would permit certified medical assistants to perform venipuncture as long as they have completed the requisite education and training.
  • On November 6, 2017 at 49 NJR 3545, the State Board of Dentistry published notice of its readoption of its rules governing the practice of dentistry.
  • On November 6, 2017 at 49 NJR 3549, the State Board of Dentistry published notice of its denial of a petition for rulemaking filed by the American Board of Dental Specialties. The petition had sought to have the Board of Dentistry formally recognize the ABDS-recognized certifying boards/areas of practice for specialist designation.  In denying the petition, the Board indicated that while it agrees that its existing specialty advertising rules should be amended, it needed more time to consider comments to a preproposal that it had published concerning specialty advertising.
