Regulatory Issues

State and federal regulations have a big impact on hospitals and their patients. WSHA works closely with regulatory agencies and other groups to advocate for a reasonable regulatory environment.  Currently, the top three regulatory issues WSHA is working on are:

  1. Support updating pharmacy regulations to allow hospitals and clinics to provide high-quality pharmacy services in innovative and cost efficient ways – Department of Health. (Ian Corbridge)
  2. Participate in revisions to certificate of need rules for elective percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) – Department of Health. (Zosia Stanley)
  3. Urge reasonable approach that maintains intermittent rest breaks for non-agricultural workers in administrative policy  – Labor & Industries. (Chelene Whiteaker)
