MONTGOMERY, AL - The death of state Senator Bobby Denton''s son led to the passage of a bill last week that will now require hospitals to report patient infection information, according to the Times Daily.
The senate bill passed the House by a 97-0 vote and also creates the Health Care Data Advisory Council, an agency subject to annual legislative review, the story reported.
The bill is named the “Mike Denton Infection Reporting Act,” after Denton''s son, who died at age 42 of a staph infection that developed after a knee replacement.
“It means a lot to me personally and my wife; it leaves a legacy for Mike,” Denton said. “I wished it a long time.”
