Psychoactive medication assessment.

If a client displays symptoms of mental illness and/or persistent challenging behavior, the service provider must:

(2) Prior to the referral, prepare a psychiatric referral summary, including the frequency and severity of the symptoms or behaviors, and take or send this document to the treatment professional conducting the assessment;
(3) Respect the client's preference to visit the treatment professional independently; and
(4) If drugs are prescribed, have the prescribing professional assess the client at least annually to review the continued need for the medication(s) and possible dosage reduction.
