More on Connecticut and the Nurse Practice Act
See this story, which begins:
Connecticut, like every state trying to reduce health care spending, is looking closely at how it cares for people with chronic conditions. Gov. Dannel Malloy has promised to move more than 5,000 poor and disabled patients out of nursing homes in five years. But the Democratic governor says there's an expensive obstacle in the way -- Connecticut law says nurses have to give medications to people in the Medicaid system living at home, and that costs a lot of money.
