Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Unified Code of Corrections. Provides that the Director of Corrections may transfer persons committed to the Department other than addicts, alcoholics, or intoxicated persons who may be subject to involuntary admission or who meets the standards of judicial admission to any psychiatric unit of any public or private hospital for observation, diagnosis, and treatment, subject to the approval of the hospital, for a period of not more than 6 months, if the person consents in writing to the transfer. Establishes procedures in which the Director of Corrections may petition the circuit court requesting transfer to the hospital if the person objects or does not consent to his or her transfer. Provides that no person may be transferred under this provision unless the Department of Corrections determines in writing that the psychiatric unit to which the person will be transferred can provide a safe and secure environment for that person. Provides that the public or private hospital shall return to the Department of Corrections any person committed to it under this provision, whose sentence has not expired and whom the hospital deems no longer subject to involuntary admission, or no longer meets the standard for judicial admission. Provides that the Department of Corrections shall notify the director of any hospital of the expiration of the sentence of any person transferred to that hospital under this provision.
