Sec. 2. 22 MRSA 1711-C, sub- 6, T is enacted to read:
This bill allows a health care practitioner to disclose health care information to the parent or guardian of an individual with a mental health diagnosis who withholds consent because of the individual’s compromised view of that individual’s mental health. A health care practitioner is not liable for failing to make a disclosure if the practitioner determines in good faith that there is no serious or imminent threat and the disclosure would interfere with providing effective care.
