Title 16 - JUVENILE PROCEEDINGS
Chapter 24 - CHILDREN'S MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES
Section 16-2410 - REVIEW OF VOLUNTARY ADMISSION.
16-2410. Review of voluntary admission. A child admitted on the consent of his parents, shall have his admission reviewed at the end of a thirty (30) day period from the initial date of admission to the program. The review shall be accomplished by having the child's treating clinician review the child's treatment and determine whether continued out-of-home treatment at the facility is still necessary and consistent with the least restrictive alternative principle. If the clinician decides that it is, he or she shall record the findings on a form to be filed in the child's record. The facility shall notify the child and his parents at least seven (7) days prior to the thirty (30) day review and give them an opportunity to comment on the need, if any, for continued inpatient or residential treatment. The facility shall ensure that the child and his parents are aware of the right to request discharge as set forth above.
If the facility staff determines that the parent of the child understands these rights and the parent of the child desires to continue treatment, then the facility staff shall so certify on a form designated by the department. These forms shall be kept in the child's patient record, and sent to the child's parent, guardian or custodian. This procedure shall take place every thirty (30) days from the date of the last admission.
