OSMA Still Has Concerns Regarding Youth Concussion BillThursday, November 01, 2012
The Ohio State Medical Association still has concerns regarding the Youth Concussion Bill (HB 143), particularly when it comes to who is allowed to give final sign off for a player to return. The bill has been passed by the House and as written would allow licensed physicians or other health care providers to return a player to the game after a head injury, as long as the provider regularly evaluates concussions in their scope of practice.
The OSMA provided testimony on the importance of physician involvement in this decision, which was featured in an article in The Columbus Dispatch. Click here for the full article.
