(405 ILCS 5/4-702)
(from Ch. 91 1/2, par. 4-702)
(a) Conditional discharge means the placement of a client
out of a facility for continuing
habilitation provided under supervision of the discharging developmental
disabilities facility or of the
Department if he was in a Department facility. The facility director may
grant a conditional discharge to a
client when he determines that conditional discharge is appropriate and
consistent with the habilitation
needs of the client.
(b) A conditional discharge shall terminate within one year unless it
is extended for one additional year.
Written notice of the extension shall be given to the persons specified
in Section 4-206 and to the facility, if
any, where the client is residing.
(c) A conditionally discharged client may be readmitted to the facility
if the facility director determines
that such readmission is consistent with the client's habilitation needs
and if the court, in the event that the
client was judicially admitted, or the person who executed the application
for administrative admission, consents thereto.
