1228.31 Forensic Psychiatric Unit
JUMP TO FULL CODE CHAPTER
Forensic units shall have security vestibules or sally ports at the unit entrance. For "secure treatment facilities", alternate designs for locked unit access without individual sally ports, may be approved by the enforcement agency when it can be demonstrated that the alternate design meets performance requirements, without compromising any health or life-safety requirement.
Forensic unit areas for pediatrics and adolescents shall be separated from adult areas. Refer to Section 1228.30.
Specialized program requirements may result in additional treatment areas, police and courtroom space, and security considerations. When a forensic unit is provided, the needs of the patient population and special requirements shall be specifically addressed in the Patient Safety Risk Assessment.
