Description

Advance directives; mental health treatment; capacity determinations. Amends procedures for advance directives to (i) provide that in cases in which a person has executed an advance directive granting an agent authority to make decisions regarding admission to a facility for mental health treatment, the determination that the person is incapable of making an informed decision regarding such care or admission may be made by the attending physician or a psychiatrist, licensed clinical psychologist, licensed psychiatric nurse practitioner, or designee of the local community services board following an in-person examination and (ii) provide that a person's agent may make a health care decision over the protest of the person if, in addition to other factors, at the time the advance directive was made, a licensed physician, licensed clinical psychologist, licensed physician assistant, licensed nurse practitioner, licensed professional counselor, or licensed clinical social worker who was familiar with the person attested in writing that the person was capable of making an informed decision and understood the consequences of the provision. The bill also clarifies that admission of a person to a facility for mental health treatment by an agent acting pursuant to an advance directive shall be subject to the statutory requirements relating to admission of an incapacitated person pursuant to an advance directive. Amends § 54.1-2983.2, § 54.1-2986.2, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »
