Creates the Patient-Assisted Hemophilia Medication Administration Act. Provides that emergency personnel may assist a patient with a rare blood disease in emergency situations to administer patient-carried medication if the administration meets specified requirements, irrespective of the age of the patient and without the need to secure separate consent from the patient or the patient's caregiver or a legal guardian if the emergency personnel take steps to deliver the patient to a receiving hospital and the receiving hospital is informed of the pending arrival of the rare blood disease patient, along with the treatment instituted by the emergency personnel. Provides an exemption from civil or professional liability. Allows the Department of Public Health to conduct or approve a training program for emergency personnel to recognize and learn additional treatment protocols for rare blood disorders. Amends the State Mandates Act to require implementation without reimbursement.
