Summary of the Introduced Bill

HB 2270 -- SAFE CARE Providers

Sponsor:  Cooper

This bill allows child abuse medical resource centers and
providers receiving training from the Sexual Assault Forensic
Examination Child Abuse Resource Education (SAFE CARE) network to
collaborate to promote improved services to children who are
suspected victims of abuse and need a forensic medical
examination by providing specialized training for forensic
medical evaluations in a hospital, child advocacy center, or by a
private health care professional without the need for a
collaborative agreement between the child abuse medical resource
center and a SAFE CARE provider.  The SAFE CARE network must
develop recommendations for medically based screening processes
and forensic evidence collection for emergency examinations of
children who are alleged victims of sexual assault and provide
those recommendations to the SAFE CARE providers, child advocacy
centers, hospitals, and licensed practitioners who provide these
emergency examinations.
