finds  and  declares  that  there  is  a  substantial  state interest in
protecting New York from the threat  of  terrorist  attacks  and  active

burden of stopping such threats falls overwhelmingly on police officers,

Therefore,  the  legislature declares the necessity for the enactment of
this act to require that police officers in certain locations within the
state be adequately equipped with state of the art  personal  protective
equipment  and firearms that will allow them to meet the existing threat
from terrorist attacks and active shooter incidents.

AN ACT to amend the public health law,  in  relation  to  screening  for
  elder abuse and maltreatment

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

  Section 1. The public health law is amended by adding a new article 19

                               ARTICLE 19

SECTION 1900. LEGISLATIVE PURPOSE.
        1901. ELDER ABUSE AND MALTREATMENT SCREENING.
  S 1900. LEGISLATIVE PURPOSE. THE CORRELATION BETWEEN ELDER  ABUSE  AND
MALTREATMENT  WITH  INCREASED HOSPITALIZATIONS, ADMISSIONS AND MORTALITY

SIGNIFICANT OPPORTUNITY FOR TRUSTED MEDICAL PROVIDERS TO  HELP  IDENTIFY
HIGH RISK PATIENTS AND HELP TO ENSURE THEIR CONTINUED HEALTH AND SAFETY.

SHALL ESTABLISH A SCREENING TOOL TO IDENTIFY ABUSE IN  ELDERLY  INDIVID-
UALS.  PHYSICIANS,  PHYSICIAN ASSISTANTS AND NURSE PRACTITIONERS MAY USE
THE TOOL TO ASSIST IN IDENTIFYING ABUSE OR MALTREATMENT IN THEIR ELDERLY
PATIENTS DURING THE COURSE OF TREATMENT INCLUDING, BUT NOT  LIMITED  TO,
ANNUAL  PHYSICAL EXAMS OR AS PART OF PATIENT SCREENING UNDER THE UNIFORM
ASSESSMENT SYSTEM FOR LONG TERM CARE AS ESTABLISHED BY THE DEPARTMENT.
  2. THE SCREENING TOOL SHALL INCLUDE, BUT NOT BE LIMITED TO:
  A. A UNIFORM INTERVENTION QUESTIONNAIRE WITH A COMMON SCALE  THAT  CAN
