Aging and Disability

Not Passed
AB 2800 (Kalra, D-San Jose)
Failed to pass the Assembly Aging and Long-Term Care Committee by the April 26 deadline.

AB 2800 would have expanded the definition of “neglect” — significantly increasing the types of conduct that constitute elder abuse — and lowered the evidentiary standard for determining elder abuse. The bill would have resulted in an increase in elder abuse claims, which are not subject to the Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act (commonly known as MICRA), and would have resulted in increased liability costs and potential impact on patient access.
