Reporting And Data

In September 2018, NRHP, DPBH and Bitfocus developed a legal hold reporting form for use by NRHP members as part of a pilot program to track legal holds and address the delays in placement of these patients.

Hospitals must report the number of applications for emergency admission received by the hospital quarterly. Within 48 hours of receiving an application for emergency admission, and within 48 hours of discharging a patient from an emergency admission, hospitals must report certain information to the Division. 

If a patient communicates an explicit threat of imminent serious physical harm or death to a clearly identified or identifiable person and, in the judgment of the mental health professional, the patient has the intent and ability to carry out the threat, the mental health professional shall apply for the emergency admission of the patient to a mental health facility pursuant to NRS 433A.160 or make a reasonable effort to communicate the threat in a timely manner to the person who is the subject of the threat (and if the person is a minor, to their parent or guardian) and to law enforcement.
