To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (H. 3223), directing the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control to promulgate regulations, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same, and recommend that the same do pass:
SAMUEL R. FOSTER, for Committee.
DIRECTING THE SOUTH CAROLINA DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND ENVIRONMENTAL CONTROL TO PROMULGATE REGULATIONS FOR THE CERTIFICATION OF LABORATORY AND RADIOLOGICAL TECHNICIANS.
Whereas, the South Carolina Legislative Joint Committee on Insurance has undertaken a study of the factors that contribute to the rising cost of health care; and
Whereas, one finding of the committee is that there presently is an insufficient number of certified laboratory technicians and radiological technicians to meet current demand; and
Whereas, the shortage of certified technicians is an acute problem in the rural areas of South Carolina. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control is directed to promulgate regulations in accordance with its rule making authority allowing for the certification of individuals, based on a course of education, training, and other relevant standards prescribed by the department, to act as both laboratory technicians and radiological technicians at the same institution.
