Summary as passed: (all summaries)
Protection of infants. Provides that when a parent voluntarily delivers a child no older than 14 days to a hospital or rescue squad, the parent will have an affirmative defense to prosecution for abuse or neglect, if the abuse or neglect prosecution is based solely upon having left the baby at such facility. Personnel who accept babies under these conditions are immune from liability absent gross negligence or willful misconduct. This bill is identical to HB 2447.
