Nevada Revised Statutes Section 433A.280 - Mental Health

In proceedings for involuntary court-ordered admission, the court shall hear and consider all relevant testimony, including, but not limited to, the testimony of examining personnel who participated in the evaluation of the person alleged to be mentally ill and the certificates of physicians or certified psychologists accompanying the petition. The court may consider testimony relating to any past actions of the person alleged to be mentally ill if such testimony is probative of the question of whether the person is presently mentally ill and presents a clear and present danger of harm to himself or others.
