25-5-124. Discharge of clients by administrator or by court; appeals to department.
(a) An interdisciplinary team may recommend to the administrator discharge of a client with an appropriate transition plan from the center when placement at home, with another service provider or another program is appropriate for the client's needs and abilities. The transition plan shall identify any recommended discharge conditions in the client's best interest, including type of residence facility, supervision and any continuing medical, therapeutic, rehabilitative or developmental services. Based on the recommendations of the team, and with the consent of the client, or his parent or guardian if he is a minor or ward, the administrator shall place the client in the alternative setting. The administrator shall discharge the client when the client has been appropriately placed in an alternative program. If the client was admitted under a court order, the administrator shall petition the court, pursuant to W.S. 25-5-121(f).
(b) If the client, or his parent or guardian if he is a minor or incompetent, disagrees with the decision of the administrator and the interdisciplinary team, the client, parent or guardian may appeal the decision to the director in writing. The department shall provide the client, parent or guardian with a decision in writing within thirty (30) days.
