     (b) A patient may elect to change his or her designated lay caregiver in the event that the originally designated lay caregiver becomes unavailable, unwilling or unable to care for the patient.

     (c) Designation of a lay caregiver by a patient or a patient's legal guardian pursuant to the provisions of this article does not obligate any individual to perform any aftercare tasks for the patient.

     (d) This article does not require a patient or a patient's legal guardian to designate any individual as a lay caregiver as defined by this article.

WVC 16 - 5 X- 3 §16-5X-3. Notification.

     If a patient has designated a lay caregiver, a hospital shall notify the patient's designated lay caregiver of the patient's discharge to the patient's residence as soon as possible. If the hospital is unable to contact the designated lay caregiver, the lack of contact may not interfere with, delay or otherwise affect the medical care provided to the patient, or an appropriate discharge of the patient. The hospital shall promptly document that in the patient's medical record, and the hospital is considered to have complied with the provisions of this section.

WVC 16 - 5 X- 4 §16-5X-4. Discharge.

     (a) As soon as possible and, in any event, upon issuance of a discharge order by the patient's attending physician, the hospital shall consult with the designated lay caregiver along with the patient regarding the lay caregiver's capabilities and limitations and issue a discharge plan that describes a patient's after-care needs at his or her residence.

     (1) Education and instruction of the lay caregiver by a hospital employee or individual with whom the hospital has a contractual relationship authorized to perform the after care task in a manner that is consistent with current accepted practices and is based on an assessment of the lay caregiver's learning needs;

     (2) An opportunity for the lay caregiver and patient to ask questions about the after-care tasks; and

     (3) Answers to the lay caregiver's and patient's questions provided in a competent manner and in accordance with the hospital's requirements to provide language access services under state and federal law.

     (c) Any instruction required under this article shall be documented in the patient's medical record, including, at minimum, the date, time, and contents of the instruction.

WVC 16 - 5 X- 5 §16-5X-5. Exceptions and immunity.

     (a) This article may not be construed to interfere with the rights of a person legally authorized to make health care decisions as provided in article thirty, chapter sixteen of this code.

     (c) A hospital, a hospital employee or any consultants or contractors with whom a hospital has a contractual relationship shall not be held liable in any way for services rendered or not rendered by the lay caregiver.
