Aging and Disability

AB 2800 (Kalra, D-San Jose)
April 16 hearing in the Assembly Aging and Long-Term Care Committee canceled at the author’s request. The author does not intend to move the bill this year.

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