A bill introduced by state Rep. Eddie Day Pashinski that enhances the authority of the Pennsylvania Insurance Department to conduct audits at continuing care facilities across the state was signed Friday by Gov. Ed Rendell.
The new law allows the insurance commissioner to determine the frequency of the department's investigations and examinations of continuing care facilities.
"The new law places better auditing safeguards on continuing care facilities so administrators can make sure that patients get the attention and treatment they need," Pashinski said. Pashinski, D-Wilkes-Barre, said under the law, the examinations are conducted at least once in the first five years of the facility, and at least once in the second five-year period. The commissioner has the authority to conduct more frequent examinations, if needed
Pashinski has a passion for health care and how it is administered. The Legislator sent his own crafted plan to President Obama. Pashinski’s common sense plan makes it easy for the average person to navigate through the red tape. This piece of legislation is only an example of Pashinski’s interest in the issue.
It was said that the Giants were stealing signs the day Bobby Thompson hit his epic home run off Ralph Branca in the prelude to the 1951 World Series. But in the 120th Legislative district, stealing signs has become a campaign issue in the three way race featuring incumbent Phyllis Mundy, GOPer Bill Goldsworthy and Libertarian candidate Tim Mullen. Goldsworthy ever the law and order man told the Times Leader
that “anyone found stealing signs will be arrested and charged”.
Like here’s my question, when you steal a sign, where do you put it? And if you try to destroy it, where do you do it?
