- Appeal From
Case No. 06-R-155
South Central Judicial District, Morton County
After a request to treat with medication has been made, an independent physician or psychiatrist must certify that the proposed treatment is clinically appropriate and necessary, that the patient was offered the treatment and refused it, that the prescribed medication is the least restrictive form necessary to meet the patient's needs, and that the benefits of treatment outweigh the known risks.
Mental health respondents are entitled to adequate notice and the opportunity to prepare to address the involuntary treatment with medication.
A district court cannot order medications which have not been noticed in the request to treat with medication and have not been certified as clinically appropriate and necessary by a second physician or psychiatrist.
The involuntary treatment with medication is not limited to psychotropic medications used to treat mental illness.
