(from Ch. 91 1/2, par. 4-504)
The respondent shall be permitted to remain in his place of
residence pending any examination for certification or diagnostic evaluation.
He may be accompanied by one or more of his relatives or friends or by his
attorney to the place of examination. If, however, the court finds that
it is necessary in order to complete the examination the court may order
that the person be admitted to a developmental disabilities facility pending
examination and may order a peace officer or other person to transport him
there. Whenever possible the examination shall be conducted at a local developmental
disabilities facility. No person may be detained for examination for certification
for more than 24 hours and for a diagnostic evaluation for more than 7 days.
