Affected individuals often do not recognize the symptoms in themselves, which is where family involvement becomes especially important. In addition, if you have suicidal thinking, an involved family member may be an important factor your clinician uses in determining your ability to be safe. A family member can monitor for suicidal behaviors. A person who is alone and without any support network is at higher risk for complications of bipolar disorder, including suicide. Thus, a clinician may insist a family member be involved in the treatment if it is believed your personal safety is at risk.

Unlike involuntary hospitalization where issues of safety trump autonomy, the right to refuse treatment continues to be sacrosanct (except as noted in Question 89 regarding the use of “chemical restraints”). In general, patients have the absolute right to refuse medical or psychiatric treatment of any kind, short of emergency hospitalization for issues of safety. The clinician must obtain informed consent prior to prescribing any treatment. Informed consent is a legal and ethical doctrine fundamental to modern medicine.

Hospitals are also required to post a patient’s “bill of rights” and hand them out to every patient. Even when involuntarily committed, patients continue to have the right to refuse treatment and cannot be medicated without consent unless there is a clear and immediate danger toward self or others. Legally known as a chemical restraint, this is typically a one-time dose of a shortacting medication to help calm the patient. Physical restraint or seclusion may also be applied to prevent a patient from harming one’s self or others.
