Welf. & Inst. Code 5152(a) (1967, var. amendments)
If a psychiatrist and psychologist have both treated a person admitted for 72 hour treatment and evaluation, the person may only be released early if the two mental health professionals consult with each other. In the event of disagreements, the 72 hour hold shall be maintained unless the director of the medical facility overrules the decision in favor of early release.
