CHA Submits Pre-Regulatory Title 22 Comments on Regulations for Acute Care Hospitals
For COOs, Licensing Staff, Rehabilitation Staff

CHA recently submitted comments to the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), responding to its requests for input on changes to Title 22 regulations. In the letter, CHA thanks CDPH for undertaking the process of revising the regulations, noting that the majority are outdated and no longer relevant to current hospital care delivery. 

Specifically, CHA urges CDPH to:

  • Require hospitals to adopt and follow national standards.
  • Eliminate Title 24 building requirements from Title 22.
  • Align administrative policy and procedure requirements across service areas.
  • Ensure definitions of specialty practice acts are consistent with those of other state agencies.
