Change the Baker Act Law

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

The Baker Act Law has failed many people due to the limited required stay for observation.  To effectively diagnose and get a medical plan of action in practice, the stay must be extended to at least 7 days (minimum) and possibly longer based on the situation.  There must also be a follow up plan in place to insure the patient is continuing to follow the medical providers instructions.  The patient must have regularly scheduled follow up visits for a pre-determined amount of time for the system to be effective.  This change in the law and action plan for follow up treatment will help prevent tragic situations where previous Baker Act patients hurt themselves or others due to misdiagnosis or simply not following doctors directions with medication or therapy.
