§101.  Boarding out patients

Under conditions indicating rehabilitation possibilities, the superintendent, with the consent of the department, may permit patients to board out with responsible persons who may be paid for their care of the patients.  This Section does not apply to patients committed in accordance with R.S. 28:59.  

A.  In determining the amount to be paid, the value of any services to be rendered by the patient while boarding shall be considered and should the services of the patient justify, he shall be paid a sum in excess of his board to compensate him for these services.  

B.  The superintendent may require the person applying to board a patient to give bond with security for the proper care of the patient.  

C.  Agents of the institution shall visit frequently every boarding patient.  If it is determined that the patient is not being cared for properly, the superintendent shall recall him to the institution with the consent of the department.
