Oklahoma Medical Treatment Laws Information Act – The Disclosures

Last year, I blogged about the 2014 Oklahoma  Medical Treatment Laws Information Act.  

This law was enacted to educate clinicians about their duties, and patients about their rights, under the 2013 Oklahoma Nondiscrimination in Treatment Act.

The law went into effect on January 1, 2015.  Accordingly, the state Medical Board has posted disclosures (for clinicians and for patients) that hospitals must provide to the same extent they must make disclosures under the Patient Self Determination Act.
