5907.09 Hearing by probate judge - costs.

(A) When the affidavit referred to in section 5907.08 of the Revised Code is filed, the probate judge shall forthwith determine whether the resident is a mentally ill person subject to hospitalization by court order. Insofar as applicable, the laws governing in cases of admission to a state hospital for persons with mental illness shall apply. The probate judge shall have the same authority, and may receive and order paid the same fees and costs, as the probate judge would have in the county in which the veteran was a resident at the time of entering the veterans' home.

(B) As used in this section, "mentally ill person subject to hospitalization by court order" has the same meaning as in section 5122.01 of the Revised Code.
