The hold was originally set for 72 hours, but it was extended to two weeks. In that time, her parents were looking to get a conservatorship over her, but her doctors may have beaten them to the punch. Her doctors are in the process of getting an LPS Hold, which is basically committing her to the facility in order to administer medications.
Doctors plan on securing the LPS Hold when Bynes is fully diagnosed within the next week. The Hold will allow her doctors to give her medications against her will, whereas under a normal conservatorship, her parents wouldn’t have been able to do so — or confine her.
The LPS Hold is far more stringent than what her parents could get. The parents could not legally force meds on Amanda nor could they effectively restrain her. We’re told Amanda literally hates her parents now after they tricked her into coming to the mental hospital.
You may recall … doctors got an LPS Hold on Amanda a little more than a year ago after she went off the rails … ending with lighting a driveway on fire and dousing her dog with gasoline. That LPS Hold expired last month.Things had gotten so bad for Bynes that she allegedly shoplifted while talking to herself, threatened to sue a magazine of which she’d given an interview, called her dad a child molester and then backtracked and had been placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold.
