Does a Baker Act go on your record?

by | Apr 15, 2020

Ask CCHR Series

Yes. There will be a medical record, a police record if law enforcement was involved and if a petition is filed for involuntary placement then also a court record. There is no procedure in the law to remove or seal the records of a Baker Act.

    How does the Baker Act affect employment and college admissions later in life?

      How a Baker Act affects employment and college admissions depends on the type of job a person is seeking and the policies of the college that the person hopes to attend.

      I’ve been baker act’d. Then applied to college, got in the best one in the state. After college I applied to Medical school and got into the best accredited one in the world. Keep in mind I’m an average student. 3.4 GPA, not a ton of extracurriculares…
      Baker act does not close doors, so long as you try hard and make sure the requirements the schools want are met.

    How does one get access to all records (police and medical)? Do the medical facilities provide everything?
