7 in total . For her to be there 2-3 day and then discharged and a repeat in a week. It is a fucking cycle. I don't have the gas to drive to all the hospitals every damn week. Nothing is ever done.. it is getting old. These hospitals aren't close they are 2-4 hrs away. And then I have to keep my son home from school because I can't guarantee I'll be back by the time he gets out of school.

What happened this last time?  When the state was going to take custody of her?

I think you need to let the state take her.

What is the longest stay your insurance will approve?

A baker act? I thought you were going to post something about people who claim to bake or something. I'm lost but here's a bump I guess.

She came home trying to get baker act within 2 hours.

2 weeks was the longest. I can't let the state have her. And getting residential long term is a long hard battle

Shit this is why I stop using baker act. Baker act is a Florida term used to invontary committed into a mental hospital usually 72 hours

Oh okay, never heard of it. I can see why you're sick of it and why go after them? I'm assuming it's a child and if you can't then you can't. Try to get them committed for longer or what would happen if you refuse to go after them? If someone was pulling that I'd be like you keep them, I can't keep dealing with it. Sounds like they just want attention.
