Does anyone know if TX has a mandatory reporting of elder abuse? In California we have such a law that if a healthcare professional suspects elder abuse their are required by law to report it. The reason I ask is that I have a friend in Dallas who just e-mailed me that she suspects that an elderly neighbor is being abused. Thanks for any information.

Could not find information on the net of the specific law, but morally I would say she is obligated to report it. I did find this link
that I think will provide a good start.
