A. The State Board of Medical Licensure and Supervision shall prepare, and from time to time amend, a brochure to inform health care providers of their responsibilities and rights under the specified sections of the Hydration and Nutrition for Incompetent Patients Act (Sections 3080.2 through 3080.5 of this title), the Nondiscrimination in Treatment Act (Sections 3090.2 and 3090.3 of this title), the Oklahoma Advance Directive Act (Section 3101.9 of this title), the Oklahoma Do-Not-Resuscitate Act (Section 3131.4 of this title) and the Assisted Suicide Prevention Act (Sections 3141.3 and 3141.4 of this title). The brochure shall include contact information for officials to whom alleged violations of those provisions may be reported. The Board shall prepare, from time to time revise, and make available on the Board's website an online presentation, which shall be a minimum of one (1) hour in length, consisting of training on the responsibilities and rights of health care providers covered by the current brochure. The Board shall provide for means to verify that a viewer indeed observed the full online presentation, such as a quiz on its content to be answered at the end of the presentation or other methods commonly employed in association with continuing medical education. The Board shall provide to each viewer who complies with such verification a dated certification that the viewer completed the online training. The Board shall make the current brochure and online presentation available on the Board's website and shall inform all Oklahoma inpatient health care services entities of their availability and how to access them online on the Board's website.
B. Inpatient health care services entities shall ensure that all health care providers and other defined officials associated with the inpatient health care services entity are provided with a copy of the current brochure and sign a certification that they have read the brochure and are familiar with their responsibilities and rights as set forth therein:
C. At least once during each consecutive two-calendar-year period all health care providers and the administrator or chief executive officer, by whatever title the person serving that function may be called, associated with an inpatient health care services entity shall observe the online presentation described in subsection A of this section. The time required for observation of this presentation shall count as part of, rather than being in addition to, continuing education otherwise required for licensed health care providers. Inpatient health care services entities shall ensure that all health care providers and other defined officials associated with the inpatient health care services entity provide the entity with a copy of each dated certification by the Board verifying that the provider or official observed the online presentation described in subsection A of this section in compliance with this requirement, and shall maintain such copies on file for a minimum of four (4) calendar years following the calendar year to which they apply. The files of such copies shall be subject to inspection under subsection B of Section 1-705, and Sections 1-829 and 1-1911 of this title.
D. The provisions of subsection B of this section shall be effective at the beginning of the second calendar month after the month in which the State Board of Medical Licensure and Supervision publishes the initial brochure required by this section on its website. The provisions of subsection C of this section shall be effective beginning with calendar year 2015.
