Support for retaining regulation [12 VAC 5-412], Licensure of Abortion Facilities
Regulations for Licensure of Abortion Facilities [12 VAC 5 412] should be retained in its current form. Infection control, record keeping, training and staff capabilities are such as to assure quality and safety of patients. In my experience as a medical technologist, I recognize the similarity of these regulation to what I have experienced with inspections of medical laboratories, specialty clinics and hospitals. These regulations are clear and comprehensive enough to meet even JCAH standards.
