Description

Temporary detention for observation and treatment. Clarifies that a person can be subject to a temporary detention order for observation and treatment related to intoxication where the person is located, upon a finding that (i) probable cause exists to believe the person is incapable of making or communicating an informed decision regarding treatment due to intoxication and (ii) the medical standard of care calls for observation, testing, or treatment within the next 24 hours to prevent injury, disability, death, or other harm to the individual resulting from such intoxication. The duration of such a temporary detention shall not exceed 24 hours. The bill provides that a person subject to emergency custody due to a mental illness shall remain in custody until (a) a temporary detention order is issued in accordance with § 37.2-809; (b) an order for temporary detention for observation, testing, or treatment is entered in accordance with § 37.2-1104, ending law enforcement custody; (c) the person is released; or (d) the emergency custody order expires. The bill directs the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services to convene a work group to develop standard policies and procedures regarding medical temporary detention orders. The work group shall complete its work no later than July 1, 2020. Read the Bill »
