49 Pa. Code § 13.306 - Confidentiality-waived

To protect children from abuse, the reporting requirements of §§ 13.302-13.304 (relating to suspected child abuse-mandated reporting requirements; photographs, medical tests and X-rays of child subject to report; and suspected death as a result of child abuse-mandated reporting requirement) take precedence over the provisions in § 13.201 (relating to professional responsibilities) and any other client confidentiality, ethical principle or professional standard that might otherwise apply. In accordance with 23 Pa.C.S. § 6311.1 (relating to privileged communications), privileged communications between a mandated reporter and a client does not apply to a situation involving child abuse and does not relieve the mandated reporter of the duty to make a report of suspected child abuse.
