P-38.0001 - Act to protect persons with regard to activities involving firearms

Full text
9. A director of an institution that operates a hospital centre or local community service centre within the meaning of the Act respecting health services and social services (chapter S-4.2), or a person designated by the director, must report to the police any instance of a person being treated in the institution for an injury caused by a projectile from a firearm, specifying only the person’s identity, if known, and the name of the institution. This information is communicated orally and as soon as is practicably possible, considering the importance of not hampering the treatment of the person concerned or disrupting the normal course of the institution’s activities.
The Government may, by regulation,
(1)  in the cases and under the conditions it determines, make other health establishments or private health facilities operated by physicians subject to the obligation to report to the police as set out in the first paragraph, which private health facilities must designate a person within the facility to assume that obligation;
(2)  determine any other information to be reported to the police to facilitate their intervention; and
(3)  specify any other requirement regarding a report to the police.
