230.7 Transfer of nonresidents.

Upon determining that a patient in a state hospital who has been involuntarily hospitalized under this Act* or admitted voluntarily at public expense was not a resident of this state at the time of the involuntary hospitalization or admission, the administrator may cause that patient to be conveyed to the patient's place of residence. However, a transfer under this section may be made only if the patient's condition so permits and other reasons do not render the transfer inadvisable. If the patient was involuntarily hospitalized, prior approval of the transfer must be obtained from the court which ordered the patient hospitalized.
