Psychiatric inpatient treatment of minors; timing of petition and hearing. Increases from 72 hours to 96 hours the length of time (i) to hold a hearing for the involuntary commitment of a minor or the emergency admission of a minor for inpatient treatment, and (ii) that a minor may be admitted by his parents to a facility over his objections. The bill also provides that the time to hold the involuntary commitment hearing runs from the filing of the petition for such hearing. The bill provides further that a petition for judicial approval of the admission of a minor by his parents over his objections shall be filed no sooner than 24 hours and no later than 96 hours after his admission.
