C. Who Can Lift a (5150) Hold

Mental Health departments must always look for the least restrictive means to serve the individual.

If the individual is deemed medically unstable and admitted to a non-designated hospital for medical treatment due to a physical condition, the WIC 5150 hold is VOID. A WIC 5150 may be re-initiated when medical discharge occurs, if clinically indicated.
