NHHA Statement on Supreme Court Ruling Relative to ER Boarding

We are pleased with the Supreme Court’s decision.  The Court clearly affirmed that when a patient is experiencing a mental health crisis, and receives an Involuntary Emergency Admission designation, then that patient should be immediately transferred to the appropriate setting to receive the specialized care and due process that they need and deserve.

We will continue working with state leaders to ensure this ruling is carried out, and that we are meeting the needs of patients experiencing mental health crises, as well as their families.
