NRS 435.350
Rights of person admitted to division facility.


Each person with an intellectual disability and each person with a developmental disability admitted to a division facility is entitled to all rights enumerated in NRS 435.006, 435.565 and 435.570.


The Administrator shall designate a person or persons to be responsible for establishment of regulations relating to denial of rights of persons with an intellectual disability or persons with a developmental disability. The person designated shall file the regulations with the Administrator.


Consumers’ rights specified in NRS 433.482, 433.484, 435.565 and 435.570 may be denied only for cause. Any denial of such rights must be entered in the consumer’s treatment record, and notice of the denial must be forwarded to the Administrator’s designee or designees as provided in subsection 2. Failure to report denial of rights by an employee may be grounds for dismissal.


Upon receipt of notice of a denial of rights as provided in subsection 3, the Administrator’s designee or designees shall cause a full report to be prepared which sets forth in detail the factual circumstances surrounding the denial. A copy of the report must be sent to the Administrator and the Commission on Behavioral Health.


The Commission on Behavioral Health has such powers and duties with respect to reports of denial of rights as are enumerated for the Commission on Behavioral Health in subsection 3 of NRS 435.610.
