Duquesne Law Review


The purpose of this paper is to present and describe a unique legislative prescription, an untried approach to the long-standing and vexing problem of insuring that each patient confined in a public mental institution will be insured at least a minimum standard of treatment. Such legislation, embodying the concept of state responsibility for treatment and offering a method for assumption of that responsibility, has been introduced in the 1969-1970 Pennsylvania legislative session.
