Patients' Rights Advocate Ensuring the rights of recipients of services is a high priority in Plumas County.
Whenever an individual is involuntarily detained in a hospital setting, California law affords certain very specific legal protections and the availability of a knowledgeable advocate to speak on behalf of the detained consumer. A Consumer 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 in the local system feels their rights are being infringed upon or even denied, that consumer can request review of the instance and a thorough investigation will be done.
