A07910 Memo:

BILL NUMBER:A7910B

TITLE OF BILL:  An act to amend the mental hygiene law, in relation to
standardized training curriculum requirements for employees and
volunteers providing services to persons with developmental
disabilities

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:  The purpose of this bill is to
standardize safety trainings at developmental disability facilities.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section 1 of the bill would amend section 13.23 of the Mental Hygiene
law by adding a new paragraph (h) which requires the commissioner of
the Office for People with Developmental Disabilities to develop an
educational curriculum for all providers operated or licensed by the
agency. The educational curriculum shill include training in abuse,
neglect and maltreatment indication and prevention; laws, regulations
and procedures governing the protection of persons with disabilities
from abuse; neglect and maltreatment; identification, safety and
security procedures; fire safety; first aid; cardiopulmonary
resuscitation; cultural competence, and: any other appropriate topic.

JUSTIFICATION:  As reported in the New York Times the past several
years, allegations of abuse, neglect, and maltreatment in programs run
or certified by the Office of People with Developmental Disabilities
are a severe problem. In response to these articles, the Assembly held
a series of statewide public hearings aimed at carefully examining the
quality of care and safety measures in homes for individuals with
developmental disabilities. As a result at the hearings, the committee
learned that many staffers may not have adequate training in
recognizing or reporting neglect or abuse. This bill will ensure that
employees of developmental disability facilities will receive adequate
training regarding patient safety.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.

FISCAL IMPACT: Undetermined.

EFFECTIVE DATE:  This act shall take effect July 1, 2015.
