Other bills approved today by the Committee include House Bill 56, requiring mandatory reporting of neglect by employees of long-term care facilities, House Bill 288, expanding the definition of exploitation to include those holding a power of attorney, House Bill 309, further defining chronic dementia and requiring disclosure of physician financial involvement in facilities, House Bill 312, increasing the amount of information available to consumers about long-term care facilities, House Bill 372, further defining inspection procedures in facilities, and House Bill 373, increasing penalties against ca
