Revise Adult Protective Services Regulations
Action 4880
General Information
Action Summary The intent of the proposed action is to review and make needed amendments to 22 VAC 30-100, Adult Protective Services. 22 VAC 30-100 establishes standards for local departments of social services (LDSS) for the provision of Adult Protective Services (APS) investigations and post-investigation services. It also provides guidance on the imposition of civil penalties on mandated reporters who fail to report suspected adult abuse, neglect, or exploitation. The regulation outlines important definitions used during the course of reporting adult abuse, neglect, and exploitation; APS investigations; and the provision of services to adults who may be victims. The specific actions an APS worker must take are also addressed. This regulatory action seeks to assess all current regulation content and clarify content that may be unclear, inconsistent, or obsolete. Additionally, it is necessary to add new language that establishes a process to afford certain alleged perpetrators of adult abuse, neglect, or exploitation the opportunity to review the actions taken by LDSS.
