Other topics will include ethical issues related to the care of the patient while in the emergency room, duty of warn (if any for your state) according to the law of the state and the Tarasoff court case (The original 1974 decision mandated warning the threatened individual, but a 1976 rehearing of the case by the California Supreme Court called for a "duty to protect" the intended victim.)The discussion will also include involuntary commitment, what treatment looks like (inpatient/outpatient) and some discussion around insurance.
