In conducting a preliminary screening of a patient, the QMHP will complete a standardized screening assessment form prepared by the Department for Aging and Disability Services. Due to its length and the inability to reproduce it legibly, a copy of the form is not included here. The 6-page, multi-copy form includes such information as the patient’s identifying data, presenting problem, treatment history, and alcohol and drug history; and the QMHP’s clinical impressions of the patient, assessment of the patient’s suicidal or homicidal risk, and diagnosis. The form also includes information about existing support systems, Medicaid pre- admission criteria, mental health reform screening disposition, and resources for diverting the patient to other treatment options. A copy of the form is available at any participating community mental health center.

2105

This form is not one which will be prepared by counsel. It can be obtained only from a participating community mental health center. It will be provided only after the mental health reform screening process is completed by a Qualified Mental Health Professional employed at the center. It is documentation of the determination by the mental health center’s staff that locally available treatment resources are insufficient to meet the needs of that patient for the particularly identified services. No patient may be admitted to a state psychiatric hospital without first being screened at a participating local community mental health center and being provided this “ticket letter” form. This requirement is applicable to both voluntary and involuntary admissions. A copy of the form will be sent directly to the state hospital and staff from the mental health center will arrange and coordinate the admission.

Notice Of Involuntary Admission To A Treatment Facility (Mental Illness)

Kansas

2113

This form is not one which will be prepared by counsel. This notice, or one similar to it, is the form by which a treatment facility complies with the requirement in K.S.A. 59-2955(a)(2). K.S.A. 59-2955(a)(2) requires as soon as the facility has knowledge of responsible parties of a patient, that the facility notify them of the patient’s whereabouts and status. The purpose of this requirement is to reunite persons with their family or guardian when they have become separated, either as a result of the patient’s mental illness or by the patient’s being taken into custody. A treatment facility may revise this “generic” form and create its own version. Treatment facilities are also invited to reprint and use this format, but are not required to do so. It is also possible a treatment facility may not utilize so formal a means of providing this written notice. A letter or an excerpt from the patient’s treatment records may in some manner substitute for this form.

The majority of the time the combined petition set out in Form 2121 will be used. This form will be used if the Ex Parte Emergency Custody Order was not requested when filing the Petition to Determine a Person to be a Mentally Ill Person Subject to Involuntary Commitment for Care and Treatment. Typically, an Ex Parte Emergency Custody Order is not initially requested when a patient’s behavior does not warrant immediate custody or the patient cannot be taken into custody at the time of the filing of the Petition. If later, but before the trial set out in K.S.A. 59-2965, the patient is found or it is determined that the patient needs immediate hospitalization, then this petition should be filed requesting the Ex Parte Emergency Custody Order (Form 2152). Under these circumstances it would be appropriate to file the Petition for a Temporary Custody Order (Form 2153) when filing this petition. This petition and the Petition for a Temporary Custody Order contain similar information and may be combined.

The petitioner has the burden of proof to show probable cause. While K.S.A. 59-2962 only requires that notice be given to the patient and the petitioner, good practice would be to give notice to all interested parties.
