Bill Summary

Protective services - access to records - information sharing between APS and CPS. The act allows adult protective services (APS) to access child abuse or neglect records and reports when the information is necessary for APS to adequately assess the safety, risk, or provision of services for an at-risk adult.

The act prohibits a substantiated perpetrator from receiving any identifying information about the person who made a report of the mistreatment or self-neglect of an at-risk adult.

The act allows any person named as an at-risk adult in a report, or the person's guardian or guardian ad litem, to access the report without a court order. The disclosure must not include any identifying information about the person who made the report. The act requires a court order if the substantiated perpetrator is the guardian of the at-risk adult.

The act allows child protective services (CPS) to access information about mistreatment or self-neglect of an at-risk adult, without a court order, when the information is necessary for CPS to adequately assess the safety, risk, or provision of services for a child.

The act limits the disclosure of information shared from APS and CPS to information regarding prior or current referrals, assessments, investigations, or related case information involving an at-risk adult and an alleged perpetrator.
