Will require mandated reporters to follow a single, simplified reporting process, and also require reports of abuse or neglect to be reported sooner than under the current system (e.g., 24 hours vs. 2 working days). Would ensure that criminal acts are reported to law enforcement first. This bill will ensure that residents of long-term care facilities have the same protections against elder abuse as persons who reside in their own homes.
Status: Referred to Committee on Aging & LTC. Will be heard 4/25/23.
