Truth in Advertising Bills Signed Into Law in UT and WV

Tuesday, April 01, 2014

On March 28, Utah and West Virginia’s Governors signed legislation concerning truth in advertising. Utah Governor Garry Herbert (R) signed SB 137 which updates the state’s truth in advertising laws to additionally require a healthcare provider to wear a badge identifying their name and license type during a patient encounter. This law goes into effect January 1, 2015. Utah already requires such information in healthcare provider advertisements.

In West Virginia, Governor Earl Ray Tomblin (D) signed SB 602 which similarly requires employees to wear an ID badge during patient encounters. Compliance is required as of July 1, 2016.

Congratulations to the leadership of Utah and West Virginia for these patient safety related legislative successes!
