Current Bill Summary

SB 301 - This act amends the provision relating to reporting of suspected abuse and neglect of a resident of a long-term care facility who is sixty years of age or older or other certain eligible adults. Current law requires a report to be made to the Department of Health and Senior Services in the event of suspected abuse and neglect. Under this act, in the event of suspected sexual assault of the resident, specified mandated reporters shall also report to local law enforcement under the procedures of the federal Elder Justice Act of 2009.

This act is identical to provisions in HB 919 (2017) and HCS/SS/SCS/SB 663 (2016) and substantially similar to provisions in HCS/HB 551 (2017), HCS/SCS/SB 334 (2017), HCS/SB 363 (2017), HCS/SB 373 (2017), SS/SCS/SBs 112, 212, 143, & 234 (2015), and SB 971 (2014).
