22 AAC 05.005. Health inspection upon initial admission

(a) A facility must provide for the safekeeping, housing, care, and subsistence of a person admitted to the facility under 22 AAC 05.020; however, if the admitting facility staff member finds the person to be unconscious or in immediate need of medical attention, the staff member shall advise the remanding or admitting party to contact responsible medical authority. The initial admission process may not be commenced until the admitting staff member is satisfied that the admittee has received medical attention, unless admission is sought under AS 47.37.170 (b) and 22 AAC 05.020(4) .

(b) During the initial admission process, the admitting staff member shall determine whether the admittee is in need of medical attention, by inspecting for obvious injuries or illnesses, and by inquiring about any medical problems or recent use of medication or unprescribed drugs. A person who appears to be ill, injured, or incapacitated by alcohol, narcotics, or similar agents, but not in immediate need of medical attention, must be given medical attention as soon as practical. A written record must be kept of the initial admission health inspection.
