An Act Regarding the Reporting Standards for Child Abuse
Sec. 1. 22 MRSA §4011-A, sub-§7, as enacted by PL 2013, c. 268, §1, is amended to read:
This subsection does not require the reporting of injuries occurring as a result of the delivery of a child attended by a licensed medical practitioner.
The bill creates an exception to the law mandating a report to the Department of Health and Human Services of suspected abuse or neglect of a child under 6 months of age for injuries occurring during birth when the delivery is attended by a licensed medical practitioner.
