24 DE Admin. Code 1725
The Delaware Polysomnography Council of the Board of Medical Licensure and Discipline, pursuant to 24 Del.C. §1799W(c), proposes to amend its rules and regulations. The proposed regulation changes clarify that the practice of polysomnography is always deemed to occur where the patient is located, regardless of whether the testing is in or out of center. In other words, if a polysomnographer is analyzing and scoring data collected during sleep monitoring which occurs in Delaware, the polysomnographer must have a Delaware license.
