CMS wants more input on scope of practice regulations, reports Health Leaders Media.
Take a few minutes and write a comment. Tell CMS that non physicians practicing medicine is dangerous and deceptive. There will be unintended consequences of diminished medical school attendees and mass firing of employed physicians for cheaper substitutes. Nursing is Not Medicine and it is deceptive for hospitals to deny patients access to physicians.
Comments should be sent to PatientsOverPaperwork@cms.hhs.gov with the phrase “Scope of Practice” in the subject line by Jan. 17, 2020.
We need your voice. Its now or never. If Section 5 is not removed…your tomorrow will be a very different world.
“There are absolutely no validated scientific studies that have shown the safety and efficacy of non-physicians [with as little as 3% of the training of physicians] practicing independently of physician supervision.”
“After residency, a physician has accrued a minimum of 20,000 or more hours of clinical experience, while a DNP only needs 1,000 patient contact hours to graduate.”
