Any records of the department or other agency pertaining to a person reported to be
abused, neglected, exploited or self-neglecting shall be confidential. The records shall not be deemed public and shall be considered records under § 38-2-2(4)(i). The director may, however, disclose to the attorney general, any local state; or
federal police officials, appropriate courts, state departments, public or private
agencies, or medical personnel, pertinent information that is necessary to investigate
reports of abuse, neglect, exploitation, or self-neglect, the coordination of needed
services, the protection of the elderly victim or criminal prosecution.
