Inpatient Services

Inpatient Services

Services provided in a hospital where a person stays overnight either because there is a psychiatric emergency or because the person needs mental health treatment that can only be done in the hospital. Admission can be voluntary or involuntary. 

Back to top

Inpatient and residential services are available throughout Sacramento County for those who are privately or publicly insured, or for those who do not have insurance. 

ELIGIBILITY

Inpatient/residential care may be needed for individuals who have a mental illness, or symptoms of mental illness, that cannot be safely treated at a lower level of care (e.g., counseling, support groups, etc.) and they:

  • Represent a current danger to themselves or others, or significant property destruction 

  • Are prevented from providing for, or using food, clothing or shelter 

  • Present a severe risk to their physical health 

  • Have a recent, significant deterioration in ability to function, and 

  • Need psychiatric evaluation, medication treatment, or other treatment that can only be provided in the hospital. 

 

Individuals may be admitted voluntarily or involuntarily. 

Voluntary admission

An individual agrees to go into and/or stay in the hospital. 

 

Involuntary admission 

Hospitals may keep an individual for up to 72 hours without their permission if they are likely to harm themselves, or someone else, and they are unable to take care of their own food, housing and clothing needs. The hospital must explain, in writing, what they are doing and what the person’s individual rights are. If doctors determine a person needs to stay longer than 72 hours, the patient has a right to a lawyer and a hearing before a judge.  

PATIENTS’ RIGHTS & PRIVACY 

Whenever an individual is involuntarily detained in a hospital setting, California law affords specific legal protections and the availability of a knowledgeable advocate to speak on behalf of the detained consumer.  A Consumers Self-Help Patients' Rights advocate will present the expressed interests of the client in Certification Review hearings and various other legal procedures which may occur routinely or which are requested by the client. Whenever a client feels their rights are being infringed upon or even denied, they have the right to request a review of the instance and a thorough investigation will be done. 

 

Patient’s Rights Advocates are available for assistance in completing forms and resolving a Grievance, Appeal, and State Fair Hearing. A Patient’s Rights Advocate can also help with questions about your rights.

For assistance: 

  • Call the Patient’s Right Advocate (916) 333-3800. 

  • If that does resolve the issue, contact the State of California’s Ombudsman for help:
