Legal Services

The Hospital Legal Services Department is the liaison between the Hospital and the Attorney General's Office, the courts, and other legal providers.

Legal Services is a resource for patients, family, and staff members who have questions regarding legal issues pertinent to Hospital procedure, patient care, and court functions. They also coordinate court schedules which include adult and juvenile mental health hearings, guilty and mentally ill review hearings, and medication hearings. Patients have access to a hospital contracted attorney to assist with legal matters. In addition, the Patient Advocate may be contacted regarding allegations of Patient Rights Violations.
