SB 1247 would create a protective hold at a hospital to assess if the person has an underlying health problem that may be causing or worsening the crisis, such as an undiagnosed urinary tract infection, dehydration or a problem with medication. The hold would only be for cases in which the person is likely to injure themselves or others.

Dixon presented the bill with Senate Minority Leader Melissa Wintrow, D-Boise, who said she’s been working on this for months over the interim. The issue came to her attention when a guest at the Interfaith Sanctuary shelter with Huntington’s disease had a crisis wherein she was endangering herself and other guests, and police officers said she couldn’t be placed on a protective hold for mental health.
