Item Details

Under existing law, there is no provision for a physician, health care professional, health care facility director, administrator, or his or her designee, to report an injury likely caused by a crime or an act of violence. This bill would create the Crimes of Violence Treatment Reporting Act. This bill would require a physician, health care professional, health care facility director, administrator, or a designee, to report to the appropriate law enforcement authorities when any person with a particular injury, wound, or illness is treated.
