NOTICE OF REVIEW AND STATEMENT OF CONTINUATION
Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:
This rule is enacted under Title 26-8a. These designations are needed for first responders in the emergency medical system. These allow immediate medical information, scene support for patient care, emotional support for first responders, and a formal requirement for quality assurance processes.
Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:
No comments, except those received during the previous amendment for a medical dispatch center requirement, have been received. That requirement is currently being amended back to prior language.
Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:
These designations are critical for immediate patient care, the emotional well-being of first responders, and the quality assurance process to improve patient care. The Utah Department of Health has considered past opposing comments and is in the process of re-amending the opposed language.
