Subd. 2.

Prescribing and filing.

(a) A licensed practitioner in the course of professional
practice only, may prescribe, administer, and dispense a legend drug, and may cause the
same to be administered by a nurse, a physician assistant, or medical student or resident
under the practitioner's direction and supervision, and may cause a person who is an
appropriately certified, registered, or licensed health care professional to prescribe, dispense,
and administer the same within the expressed legal scope of the person's practice as defined
in Minnesota Statutes. A licensed practitioner may prescribe a legend drug, without reference
to a specific patient, by directing a licensed dietitian or licensed nutritionist, pursuant to
section 148.634; a nurse, pursuant to section 148.235, subdivisions 8 and 9; physician
assistant; medical student or resident; or pharmacist according to section 151.01, subdivision
27, to adhere to a particular practice guideline or protocol when treating patients whose
condition falls within such guideline or protocol, and when such guideline or protocol
specifies the circumstances under which the legend drug is to be prescribed and administered.
An individual who verbally, electronically, or otherwise transmits a written, oral, or electronic
order, as an agent of a prescriber, shall not be deemed to have prescribed the legend drug.
This paragraph applies to a physician assistant only if the physician assistant meets the
requirements of section 147A.18.

(b) The commissioner of health, if a licensed practitioner, or a person designated by the
commissioner who is a licensed practitioner, may prescribe a legend drug to an individual
or by protocol for mass dispensing purposes where the commissioner finds that the conditions
triggering section 144.4197 or 144.4198, subdivision 2, paragraph (b), exist. The
commissioner, if a licensed practitioner, or a designated licensed practitioner, may prescribe,
dispense, or administer a legend drug or other substance listed in subdivision 10 to control
tuberculosis and other communicable diseases. The commissioner may modify state drug
labeling requirements, and medical screening criteria and documentation, where time is
critical and limited labeling and screening are most likely to ensure legend drugs reach the
maximum number of persons in a timely fashion so as to reduce morbidity and mortality.

(c) A licensed practitioner that dispenses for profit a legend drug that is to be administered
orally, is ordinarily dispensed by a pharmacist, and is not a vaccine, must file with the
practitioner's licensing board a statement indicating that the practitioner dispenses legend
drugs for profit, the general circumstances under which the practitioner dispenses for profit,
and the types of legend drugs generally dispensed. It is unlawful to dispense legend drugs
for profit after July 31, 1990, unless the statement has been filed with the appropriate
licensing board. For purposes of this paragraph, "profit" means (1) any amount received by
the practitioner in excess of the acquisition cost of a legend drug for legend drugs that are
purchased in prepackaged form, or (2) any amount received by the practitioner in excess
of the acquisition cost of a legend drug plus the cost of making the drug available if the
legend drug requires compounding, packaging, or other treatment. The statement filed under
this paragraph is public data under section 13.03. This paragraph does not apply to a licensed
doctor of veterinary medicine or a registered pharmacist. Any person other than a licensed
practitioner with the authority to prescribe, dispense, and administer a legend drug under
paragraph (a) shall not dispense for profit. To dispense for profit does not include dispensing
by a community health clinic when the profit from dispensing is used to meet operating
expenses.

(d) A prescription drug order for the following drugs is not valid, unless it can be
established that the prescription drug order was based on a documented patient evaluation,
including an examination, adequate to establish a diagnosis and identify underlying conditions
and contraindications to treatment:

(1) controlled substance drugs listed in section 152.02, subdivisions 3 to 5;

(2) drugs defined by the Board of Pharmacy as controlled substances under section
152.02, subdivisions 7, 8, and 12;

(3) muscle relaxants;

(4) centrally acting analgesics with opioid activity;

(5) drugs containing butalbital; or

(6) phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors when used to treat erectile dysfunction.

new text begin For purposes of prescribing drugs listed in clause (6), the requirement for a documented
patient evaluation, including an examination, may be met through the use of telemedicine,
as defined in section 147.033, subdivision 1.
new text end

(e) For the purposes of paragraph (d), the requirement for an examination shall be met
if an in-person examination has been completed in any of the following circumstances:

(1) the prescribing practitioner examines the patient at the time the prescription or drug
order is issued;

(2) the prescribing practitioner has performed a prior examination of the patient;

(3) another prescribing practitioner practicing within the same group or clinic as the
prescribing practitioner has examined the patient;

(4) a consulting practitioner to whom the prescribing practitioner has referred the patient
has examined the patient; or

(5) the referring practitioner has performed an examination in the case of a consultant
practitioner issuing a prescription or drug order when providing services by means of
telemedicine.

(f) Nothing in paragraph (d) or (e) prohibits a licensed practitioner from prescribing a
drug through the use of a guideline or protocol pursuant to paragraph (a).

(g) Nothing in this chapter prohibits a licensed practitioner from issuing a prescription
or dispensing a legend drug in accordance with the Expedited Partner Therapy in the
Management of Sexually Transmitted Diseases guidance document issued by the United
States Centers for Disease Control.

(h) Nothing in paragraph (d) or (e) limits prescription, administration, or dispensing of
legend drugs through a public health clinic or other distribution mechanism approved by
the commissioner of health or a community health board in order to prevent, mitigate, or
treat a pandemic illness, infectious disease outbreak, or intentional or accidental release of
a biological, chemical, or radiological agent.

(i) No pharmacist employed by, under contract to, or working for a pharmacy located
within the state and licensed under section 151.19, subdivision 1, may dispense a legend
drug based on a prescription that the pharmacist knows, or would reasonably be expected
to know, is not valid under paragraph (d).

(j) No pharmacist employed by, under contract to, or working for a pharmacy located
outside the state and licensed under section 151.19, subdivision 1, may dispense a legend
drug to a resident of this state based on a prescription that the pharmacist knows, or would
reasonably be expected to know, is not valid under paragraph (d).

(k) Nothing in this chapter prohibits the commissioner of health, if a licensed practitioner,
or, if not a licensed practitioner, a designee of the commissioner who is a licensed
practitioner, from prescribing legend drugs for field-delivered therapy in the treatment of
a communicable disease according to the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention Partner
Services Guidelines.

injured persons or entities on whose behalf the litigation or settlement efforts were initiated.
If money recovered on behalf of injured persons or entities cannot reasonably be distributed

the cost of distributing the money would outweigh the benefit to the persons or entities, the
money must be paid into the general fund.

(b) Money recovered on behalf of a fund in the state treasury other than the general fund
may be deposited in that fund.

(c) This section does not prohibit a state official from distributing money to a person or
entity other than the state in litigation or potential litigation in which the state is a defendant
or potential defendant.

(d) State agencies may accept funds as directed by a federal court for any restitution or
monetary penalty under United States Code, title 18, section 3663(a)(3)new text begin,new text end or United States

one or more opioid manufacturers or opioid wholesale drug distributors related to alleged
violations of consumer fraud laws in the marketing, sale, or distribution of opioids in this
state or other alleged illegal actions that contributed to the excessive use of opioids, must
be deposited in a separate account in the state treasury and the commissioner shall notify
the chairs and ranking minority members of the Finance Committee in the senate and the

(4) a monthly income allowance determined under section 256B.058, subdivision 2, but
only to the extent income of the institutionalized spouse is made available to the community
spouse;

(5) a monthly allowance for children under age 18 which, together with the net income
of the children, would provide income equal to the medical assistance standard for families
and children according to section 256B.056, subdivision 4, for a family size that includes
only the minor children. This deduction applies only if the children do not live with the
community spouse and only to the extent that the deduction is not included in the personal

calendar months, in an amount equal to the medical assistance standard for a family size of
one if:

(1) a physician or advanced practice registered nurse certifies that the person is expected
to reside in the long-term care facility for three calendar months or less;

(2) if the person has expenses of maintaining a residence in the community; and

(3) if one of the following circumstances apply:

(i) the person was not living together with a spouse or a family member as defined in
paragraph (a) when the person entered a long-term care facility; or

(ii) the person and the person's spouse become institutionalized on the same date, in

or (2) 32 percent above the rate in effect on June 30, 1992, except for those services for
which there is a federal maximum allowable payment. Effective for services rendered on
or after January 1, 2000, payment rates for nonsurgical outpatient hospital facility fees and
emergency room facility fees shall be increased by eight percent over the rates in effect on
December 31, 1999, except for those services for which there is a federal maximum allowable
payment. Services for which there is a federal maximum allowable payment shall be paid
at the lower of (1) submitted charge, or (2) the federal maximum allowable payment. Total
aggregate payment for outpatient hospital facility fee services shall not exceed the Medicare
upper limit. If it is determined that a provision of this section conflicts with existing or
future requirements of the United States government with respect to federal financial
participation in medical assistance, the federal requirements prevail. The commissioner
may, in the aggregate, prospectively reduce payment rates to avoid reduced federal financial
participation resulting from rates that are in excess of the Medicare upper limitations.

(b) Notwithstanding paragraph (a), payment for outpatient, emergency, and ambulatory
surgery hospital facility fee services for critical access hospitals designated under section
144.1483, clause (9), shall be paid on a cost-based payment system that is based on the
cost-finding methods and allowable costs of the Medicare program. Effective for services
provided on or after July 1, 2015, rates established for critical access hospitals under this
paragraph for the applicable payment year shall be the final payment and shall not be settled
to actual costs. Effective for services delivered on or after the first day of the hospital's fiscal
year ending in deleted text begin2016deleted text endnew text begin 2017new text end, the rate for outpatient hospital services shall be computed using
information from each hospital's Medicare cost report as filed with Medicare for the year
that is two years before the year that the rate is being computed. Rates shall be computed
using information from Worksheet C series until the department finalizes the medical
assistance cost reporting process for critical access hospitals. After the cost reporting process
is finalized, rates shall be computed using information from Title XIX Worksheet D series.
The outpatient rate shall be equal to ancillary cost plus outpatient cost, excluding costs
related to rural health clinics and federally qualified health clinics, divided by ancillary
charges plus outpatient charges, excluding charges related to rural health clinics and federally
qualified health clinics.

(c) Effective for services provided on or after July 1, 2003, rates that are based on the
Medicare outpatient prospective payment system shall be replaced by a budget neutral
prospective payment system that is derived using medical assistance data. The commissioner
shall provide a proposal to the 2003 legislature to define and implement this provision.

(d) For fee-for-service services provided on or after July 1, 2002, the total payment,
before third-party liability and spenddown, made to hospitals for outpatient hospital facility
services is reduced by .5 percent from the current statutory rate.

(e) In addition to the reduction in paragraph (d), the total payment for fee-for-service
services provided on or after July 1, 2003, made to hospitals for outpatient hospital facility
services before third-party liability and spenddown, is reduced five percent from the current
statutory rates. Facilities defined under section 256.969, subdivision 16, are excluded from

Subd. 10.

Participation in planning treatment; notification of family members.

(a)
Patients and residents shall have the right to participate in the planning of their health care.
This right includes the opportunity to discuss treatment and alternatives with individual
caregivers, the opportunity to request and participate in formal care conferences, and the
right to include a family member or other chosen representative, or both. In the event that

unless the facility knows or has reason to believe the patient or resident has an effective
advance directive to the contrary or knows the patient or resident has specified in writing
that they do not want a family member included in treatment planning. After notifying a
family member but prior to allowing a family member to participate in treatment planning,
the facility must make reasonable efforts, consistent with reasonable medical practice, to
determine if the patient or resident has executed an advance directive relative to the patient
or resident's health care decisions. For purposes of this paragraph, "reasonable efforts"
include:

(1) examining the personal effects of the patient or resident;

(2) examining the medical records of the patient or resident in the possession of the
facility;

(3) inquiring of any emergency contact or family member contacted under this section

or resident has a physiciannew text begin or advanced practice registered nursenew text end to whom the patient or
resident normally goes for care; and

(4) inquiring of the physiciannew text begin or advanced practice registered nursenew text end to whom the patient
or resident normally goes for care, if known, whether the patient or resident has executed
an advance directive. If a facility notifies a family member or designated emergency contact
or allows a family member to participate in treatment planning in accordance with this
paragraph, the facility is not liable to the patient or resident for damages on the grounds
that the notification of the family member or emergency contact or the participation of the
family member was improper or violated the patient's privacy rights.

(c) In making reasonable efforts to notify a family member or designated emergency
contact, the facility shall attempt to identify family members or a designated emergency
contact by examining the personal effects of the patient or resident and the medical records
of the patient or resident in the possession of the facility. If the facility is unable to notify
a family member or designated emergency contact within 24 hours after the admission, the
facility shall notify the county social service agency or local law enforcement agency that
the patient or resident has been admitted and the facility has been unable to notify a family
member or designated emergency contact. The county social service agency and local law
enforcement agency shall assist the facility in identifying and notifying a family member
or designated emergency contact. A county social service agency or local law enforcement
agency that assists a facility in implementing this subdivision is not liable to the patient or
resident for damages on the grounds that the notification of the family member or emergency

Sec. 45.

Minnesota Statutes 2018, section 144.651, subdivision 33, is amended to read:


Subd. 33.

Restraints.

(a) Competent nursing home residents, family members of residents
who are not competent, and legally appointed conservators, guardians, and health care agents
as defined under section 145C.01, have the right to request and consent to the use of a
physical restraint in order to treat the medical symptoms of the resident.

(b) Upon receiving a request for a physical restraint, a nursing home shall inform the

with physical restraint use. The nursing home shall provide a physical restraint to a resident
only upon receipt of a signed consent form authorizing restraint use and a written order
from the attending physiciannew text begin or advanced practice registered nursenew text end that contains statements
and determinations regarding medical symptoms and specifies the circumstances under
which restraints are to be used.

(c) A nursing home providing a restraint under paragraph (b) must:

(1) document that the procedures outlined in that paragraph have been followed;

(2) monitor the use of the restraint by the resident; and

(3) periodically, in consultation with the resident, the family, and the attending physiciannew text begin
or advanced practice registered nurse
new text end, reevaluate the resident's need for the restraint.

(d) A nursing home shall not be subject to fines, civil money penalties, or other state or
federal survey enforcement remedies solely as the result of allowing the use of a physical
restraint as authorized in this subdivision. Nothing in this subdivision shall preclude the
commissioner from taking action to protect the health and safety of a resident if:

(1) the use of the restraint has jeopardized the health and safety of the resident; and

(2) the nursing home failed to take reasonable measures to protect the health and safety
of the resident.

(e) For purposes of this subdivision, "medical symptoms" include:

(1) a concern for the physical safety of the resident; and

(2) physical or psychological needs expressed by a resident. A resident's fear of falling
may be the basis of a medical symptom.

A written order from the attending physiciannew text begin or advanced practice registered nursenew text end that
contains statements and determinations regarding medical symptoms is sufficient evidence
of the medical necessity of the physical restraint.

(f) When determining nursing facility compliance with state and federal standards for
the use of physical restraints, the commissioner of health is bound by the statements and
determinations contained in the attending physician'snew text begin or advanced practice registered nurse'snew text end
order regarding medical symptoms. For purposes of this order, "medical symptoms" include
the request by a competent resident, family member of a resident who is not competent, or
legally appointed conservator, guardian, or health care agent as defined under section
145C.01, that the facility provide a physical restraint in order to enhance the physical safety
of the resident.

Correction order; emergencies.

A substantial violation of the rights of any
patient or resident as defined in section 144.651, shall be grounds for issuance of a correction
order pursuant to section 144.653 or 144A.10. The issuance or nonissuance of a correction
order shall not preclude, diminish, enlarge, or otherwise alter private action by or on behalf
of a patient or resident to enforce any unreasonable violation of the patient's or resident's
rights. Compliance with the provisions of section 144.651 shall not be required whenever
emergency conditions, as documented by the attending physiciannew text begin or advanced practice
registered nurse
new text end in a patient's medical record or a resident's care record, indicate immediate
medical treatment, including but not limited to surgical procedures, is necessary and it is
impossible or impractical to comply with the provisions of section 144.651 because delay

Procedures without consent.

(a) An emergency medical services agency, or,
if there is no agency, an emergency medical services person, may bring a petition for a court
order to require a source individual to provide a blood sample for testing for blood-borne
pathogens. The petition shall be filed in the district court in the county where the source
individual resides or is hospitalized. The petitioner shall serve the petition on the source
individual at least three days before a hearing on the petition. The petition shall include one

results may be used;

(3) a licensed physiciannew text begin or advanced practice registered nursenew text end for the emergency medical
services person needs the test results for beginning, continuing, modifying, or discontinuing
medical treatment for the emergency medical services person; and

(4) the court finds a compelling need for the test results. In assessing compelling need,
the court shall weigh the need for the court-ordered blood collection and test results against
the interests of the source individual, including, but not limited to, privacy, health, safety,
or economic interests. The court shall also consider whether the involuntary blood collection
and testing would serve the public interest.

(d) The court shall conduct the proceeding in camera unless the petitioner or the source

HEALTH CARE DIRECTIVE

I, ..........................., understand this document allows me to do ONE OR BOTH of the

PART I: Name another person (called the health care agent) to make health care decisions
for me if I am unable to decide or speak for myself. My health care agent must make health
care decisions for me based on the instructions I provide in this document (Part II), if any,
the wishes I have made known to him or her, or must act in my best interest if I have not
made my health care wishes known.

AND/OR

PART II: Give health care instructions to guide others making health care decisions for
me. If I have named a health care agent, these instructions are to be used by the agent. These
instructions may also be used by my health care providers, others assisting with my health
care and my family, in the event I cannot make decisions for myself.

PART I: APPOINTMENT OF HEALTH CARE AGENT

THIS IS WHO I WANT TO MAKE HEALTH CARE DECISIONS

FOR ME IF I AM UNABLE TO DECIDE OR SPEAK FOR MYSELF

(I know I can change my agent or alternate agent at any time and I know I do not have
to appoint an agent or an alternate agent)

NOTE: If you appoint an agent, you should discuss this health care directive with your agent
and give your agent a copy. If you do not wish to appoint an agent, you may leave Part I
blank and go to Part II.

When I am unable to decide or speak for myself, I trust and appoint .......................... to
make health care decisions for me. This person is called my health care agent.

Relationship of my health care agent to me: .

Telephone number of my health care agent: .

Address of my health care agent: .

THIS IS WHAT I WANT MY HEALTH CARE AGENT TO BE ABLE TO

DO IF I AM UNABLE TO DECIDE OR SPEAK FOR MYSELF

My health care agent is automatically given the powers listed below in (A) through (D).
My health care agent must follow my health care instructions in this document or any other
instructions I have given to my agent. If I have not given health care instructions, then my
agent must act in my best interest.

Whenever I am unable to decide or speak for myself, my health care agent has the power
to:

(A) Make any health care decision for me. This includes the power to give, refuse, or
withdraw consent to any care, treatment, service, or procedures. This includes deciding
whether to stop or not start health care that is keeping me or might keep me alive, and
deciding about intrusive mental health treatment.

(B) Choose my health care providers.

(C) Choose where I live and receive care and support when those choices relate to my
health care needs.

(D) Review my medical records and have the same rights that I would have to give my
medical records to other people.

If I DO NOT want my health care agent to have a power listed above in (A) through (D)
OR if I want to LIMIT any power in (A) through (D), I MUST say that here:

.

.

.

My health care agent is NOT automatically given the powers listed below in (1) and (2).
If I WANT my agent to have any of the powers in (1) and (2), I must INITIAL the line in
front of the power; then my agent WILL HAVE that power.

.
(1)
To decide whether to donate any parts of my body, including organs, tissues,
and eyes, when I die.
.

To decide what will happen with my body when I die (burial, cremation).

If I want to say anything more about my health care agent's powers or limits on the
powers, I can say it here:

PART II: HEALTH CARE INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Complete this Part II if you wish to give health care instructions. If you appointed
an agent in Part I, completing this Part II is optional but would be very helpful to your agent.
However, if you chose not to appoint an agent in Part I, you MUST complete some or all
of this Part II if you wish to make a valid health care directive.

These are instructions for my health care when I am unable to decide or speak for myself.
These instructions must be followed (so long as they address my needs).
