Adult protective services; investigations. Requires local departments of social services and local law-enforcement agencies that initiate an investigation upon receipt of a valid report of suspected abuse, neglect, or exploitation of an adult 60 years old or older or incapacitated in a custodial setting or by a licensed health care professional to convey to all appropriate licensing, regulatory, or legal authorities (i) the name of the facility, program, or individual and (ii) the final disposition of such investigations. The bill requires any licensing, regulatory, or legal authorities receiving such information to retain it on file with any other information associated with the facility, program, or individual and, upon receiving the final disposition, to discard the initial report. The bill exempts any information exchanged under these provisions from the disclosure requirements of the Virginia Freedom of Information Act. Read the Bill »
