AN ACT to amend the social services law, in relation to reporting deaths
  and felony crimes in certain adult care facilities

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Section 461-m of the social services law, as amended by a
chapter of the laws of 2017, amending the social services  law  relating
to  death  and felony crime reports in certain adult care facilities, as
proposed in legislative bills numbers S. 787-A and A. 2702,  is  amended
to read as follows:
  §  461-m.  Death  and felony crime reporting. The operator of an adult
home, enriched housing program or residence for  adults  shall  have  an
affirmative duty to report any death, or attempted suicide of a resident
to  the department of health within twenty-four hours of its occurrence,
and shall also have an affirmative duty to report to an appropriate  law
enforcement  authority  if  the  operator discovers an incident that the
operator believes or reasonably should believe would constitute a felony
crime against a resident of such facility as soon as possible, or in any
event within twenty-four hours. In addition, [any] THE  operator  [of  a
facility  defined  in  section four hundred eighty-eight of this chapter
that is subject to this section,] shall[, in addition,] send any reports
involving a resident who had at any time received services from a mental
hygiene service provider to the justice center  for  the  protection  of
people with special needs [within twenty-four hours of the occurrence of
the  death  or attempted suicide or of the discovery of an incident that
the operator believed or reasonably should have believed to be a  felony
crime].
  §  2.  This  act  shall  take  effect on the same date and in the same
manner as a chapter of the laws of 2017, amending  the  social  services
law  relating  to  death  and felony crime reports in certain adult care
facilities, as proposed in legislative bills numbers  S.  787-A  and  A.
2702, takes effect.
