The Act expands the definition of “child abuse” by providing for a definition of “near fatality.” It also changes who may access records of child abuse and deprivation to include any governmental agency and certain other persons as defined by the Act. Additionally, it makes cases of near fatality accessible to these agencies and individuals. In doing so, the Act prohibits personally identifiable information from disclosure in these cases.
