Senate Bill 0253
DIGEST OF SB0253 (Updated January 20, 2004 12:15 pm - DI 106)
Abuse of an endangered adult. Removes the requirement that the state department of health request assistance before the division of disability, aging, and rehabilitative services or adult protective services may investigate a report of an endangered adult residing in a health facility. Specifies that, for purposes of provision requiring adult protective services to immediately communicate to the state department of health a report of an endangered adult residing in a health facility, an endangered adult is not an adult who is an alcoholic or a drug abuser. Makes failing to report an abused endangered adult a Class B misdemeanor instead of a Class A infraction. Corrects statutory references.
