(a) Prior to discharge under Sections 4-701 or 4-702, the
facility director shall prepare a
post-discharge plan which is consistent with the client's habilitation goals.
To the extent possible, the
client and his family shall be consulted in the preparation and implementation
of the plan.
(b) Prior to discharge if the client is 18 years of age or older and does
not have a guardian, he shall be evaluated to
determine whether he requires one. If it is determined that the client
requires a guardian, his parent or another
interested person shall be notified and requested to file a petition for
the appointment of a guardian. If no
petition is filed, the facility director of the facility may file such a petition.
