  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:
  S 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].
  S 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.
