241.07 TRANSFER OF INMATES TO OTHER STATE INSTITUTIONS.
The commissioner of corrections may transfer an inmate of any state correctional facility to a
state institution under the control of the commissioner of human services or to a private medical
facility for diagnosis, treatment, or care which is not available at any state correctional facility
and shall cause a proper record to be made at the institutions or facility to which a transfer has
been made and at the commissioner's office. No transfer shall be made by the commissioner of
corrections without the approval of the commissioner of human services or the chief executive
officer of the private facility. An inmate of any state correctional facility so transferred shall be
returned to the correctional facility from which transferred by order of the commissioner of
corrections upon conclusion of treatment, or, if the inmate becomes eligible for release from
custody pursuant to the terms of the sentence prior to conclusion of treatment, the inmate shall
be released unless, before conclusion of treatment, the inmate has been committed to a medical
institution by competent authority as provided by law. The superintendent of any state institution
or the chief executive officer of any private facility shall at once notify the commissioner of
corrections if there is any question as to the propriety of the commitment or detention of any
inmate admitted to their institution or facility and the commissioner shall immediately take
action on the question.
