Argentum lauds state partner Argentum New York for its efforts in successfully advocating for passing legislation authorizing a new category of advanced home health aides to perform advanced tasks.
The AHHAs now can administer certain medications under the direct supervision of a registered nurse thanks to Gov. Andrew Cuomo signing and enacting the Advanced Home Health Aide Legislation (A. 10707/S. 8110).
The final version of the law includes Enhanced Assisted Living Residences as permissible employment settings for these advanced aides. Now that the language is law, a work group will be convened to develop regulations specifying the training and supervision requirements as well as enumerating the specific advanced tasks that AHHAs may perform. Argentum New York will be an active participant in this group.
