Reporting And Data

Every provider of health care to whom any person comes or is brought for treatment of an injury which appears to have been inflicted by means of a firearm or knife, not under accidental circumstances, shall promptly report the person’s name, if known, his or her location and the character and extent of the injury to an appropriate law enforcement agency.

Although many of these requirements apply to individual medical professionals and other types of hospitals and health care facilities, the information is presented solely to support Critical Access Hospitals. The reporting requirements and legal mandates on this site are not an exhaustive list and Nevada Rural Hospital Partners, Inc. bears no responsibility or liability for any hospitals' or providers' failure to comply with Federal or State laws or regulations.
