Now, the introduction of Florida HB 843 requires hospitals to notify a patient’s primary care physician (PCP) or specialist, if they have one, within 24 hours of the patient’s admission and discharge from a hospital and to permit the PCP or specialist to consult in the development of the patient’s plan of care. Hospitals are also required to provide private physicians with a copy of the discharge summary within 14 days.
