My question involves public health law in the State of:
I have a friend who's son was taken to the hospital with mental health tendencies. The hospital did as much as they could and served the parents with papers from the Sheriff's office stating that her son needed to be evaluated by a psychiatrist and a hearing scheduled with a judge and public defender to determine if competent enough to handle his own affairs and if any improvement in care or if need to be admitted to mental hospital. Her son is now being evaluated by a Recovery Center and having an assessment done. The Recovery Center is advising my friend that she has no legal rights to her son's medical care and information since he is 21 year old adult. Is there anything she's able to do to obtain his mental records to stay up on his care. Retain a Lawyer perhaps?
