The county hospital shall establish procedures as are necessary to assure that the required notifications are given and documented.


Upon the discharge of a mental health patient, the patient and the patient's conservator, guardian, or other legal representative must be given a written aftercare plan. Such plan should include: nature of the illness and required follow up, medications to be taken, expected course of recovery, recommendations of treatment relevant to the patient's care, referrals to medical and mental health services, and other relevant information. The patient may designate another person to receive a copy of the plan.
