Adm. Order No.: DHSD 11-2010

Filed with Sec. of State: 12-30-2010

Certified to be Effective: 1-1-11

Rules Amended: 407-045-0260

Rules Repealed: 407-045-0260(T)

Subject: The Department of Human Services is amending this rule to correct a scrivener’s error in the definition of “Neglect” found at 407-045-0260(1)(e)(A). The current rule states, “Neglect includes active or passive failure to provide the care, supervision, or services necessary to maintain the physical and mental health of an adult that creates a risk of significant harm or results in harm to the adult.” The correct language and legal standard is “…significant risk of harm.” A temporary rule is currently in effect (8/5/10 through 1/31/11) and will be repealed when this permanent rulemaking goes into effect.
