Nevada Public Health and Safety
Sec. § 439.155
Contracts for cooperation with governmental entities and others; effect of payments to Division for such cooperation; immunity from and limitations on liability not waived.


1.

For the purposes of this chapter, the Department through the Division may cooperate, financially or otherwise, and execute contracts or agreements with the Federal Government, any federal department or agency, any other state department or agency, a county, a city, a public district or any political subdivision of this State, a public or private corporation, an individual or a group of individuals. Such a contract or agreement may include provisions whereby the Division will provide staff, services or other resources, or any combination thereof, without payment, to further the purposes of the contract or agreement. If the contract or agreement includes a provision whereby the Division is paid for the provision of staff, services or other resources, the payment will be reimbursed directly to the Divisions budget. Cooperation pursuant to this section does not of itself relieve any person, department, agency or political subdivision of any responsibility or liability existing under any provision of law.

2.

If the Administrator or the Administrators designee enters into a contract or agreement pursuant to subsection 1 with a private nonprofit corporation, the contract or agreement may allow:

(a)

The Division to enter and inspect any premises which are related to services provided under the contract or agreement and to inspect any records which are related to services provided under the contract or agreement to ensure the welfare of any consumer served by the private nonprofit corporation under the contract or agreement;

(b)

The Division and the private nonprofit corporation to share confidential information concerning any consumer served by the private nonprofit corporation under the contract or agreement; and

(c)

The private nonprofit corporation to assign rights and obligations of the private nonprofit corporation under the contract or agreement to the Division.

3.

The State, the Department and the Division do not waive any immunity from liability or limitation on liability provided by law by entering into a contract or agreement pursuant to this section and any such contract or agreement must include a provision to that effect.
