Beginning July 1, 2017, this bill would require the department to establish and administer an Internet Web site-based electronic registry, known as the acute psychiatric bed registry, to collect, aggregate, and display information regarding the availability of acute psychiatric beds in health facilities to facilitate the identification and designation of health facilities for the temporary detention and treatment of individuals who meet specified criteria for temporary detention. The bill would require a health facility to, on or before July 1, 2017, designate an employee to submit to the registry notification that an acute psychiatric bed has become available at the health facility and to serve as the contact person to respond to requests for information related to data reported to the registry, as provided.
