INTRODUCED

HB 2125 -- Comprehensive Psychiatric Services

Sponsor:  Selby

This bill requires mental health hospitals or facilities to
submit a quarterly report to the Department of Mental Health if
such facilities and physicians (on an outpatient basis)
administer electroconvulsive therapy, psychosurgery, or other
specified therapies for the treatment of mental illness.  The
bill specifies the components which must be included in the
quarterly reports.

Mental hospitals, facilities, or physicians who violate
provisions of the bill commit a misdemeanor and are subject to a
specified fine, confinement in jail, or both.  The penalties
contained in the bill will apply to violations committed on or
after August 28, 2000.  For violations committed before August
28, 2000, current law will apply.

The department is required to use the submitted information for
the purposes of auditing, analyzing, and monitoring the use of
such therapies.
