Clarify Disclosure Of A Report To At-risk Adult
Protective services - access to records - clarifies disclosure of report to at-risk adult. House Bill 19-1063, concerning the ability to share information between county adult protective services with county child protective services as well as at-risk adults obtaining their own information, allowed an at-risk adult to access a report of the mistreatment or self-neglect of an at-risk adult (report) without a court order, but the act did not specify that only the individual who is the subject of the report may access the report. This act clarifies that a court order is not required when a report of the mistreatment or self-neglect of an at-risk adult is disclosed to the at-risk adult who is the subject of the report.
