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.
