Beginning July 1, 2014, A New Colorado law will make elder abuse reporting mandatory

Senate Bill 13-111 was signed into law May 16th, 2013 by Governor Hickenlooper and will go into effect July 1.

The new law requires administrators, caregivers, nurses, physicians, other health care providers and other professionals, such as bank employees, coroners, social workers among others, to report any suspicion of abuse, neglect or exploitation of at-risk elders to law enforcement.

According to the statute, “willful failure to report such suspicions can result in misdemeanor charges that carry penalties of a fine up to $750 and six months in jail”.

This new law must be reviewed with all Health Care Personnel and Assisted Living Employees.

Call me if you would like to set up some training sessions.
