Summary

The bill exempts an employee or person acting on behalf of the
office of the child protection ombudsman (ombudsman) from testifying
in a civil or criminal proceeding in which the ombudsman is not a legal
party. The bill prohibits information, documents, and reports requested
and reviewed by the ombudsman from being subpoenaed in a civil or

criminal proceeding in which the ombudsman is not a legal party.
The bill authorizes the ombudsman to receive information, records,
or documents related to a critical incident, incident of egregious abuse or
neglect, near fatality, or fatality of a child during the course of an
investigation of a complaint. The department of public health and
environment's child fatality prevention review team shall provide the
ombudsman the nonidentifying case review findings and
recommendations related to an investigation of a complaint. The
department of human services' child fatality review team shall provide the
ombudsman the final confidential, case-specific review report related to
an investigation of a complaint. The bill also requires the department of
human services' division of youth services to provide the ombudsman
information, records, and documents related to a critical incident. If
electronic copies are not available, the ombudsman shall access, review,
and receive copies of documents without cost to the ombudsman.
