241.334 CONSENT PROCEDURES GENERALLY.

(a) For purposes of sections 241.33 to 241.342, whenever the correctional facility is required to seek consent, the correctional facility shall obtain consent from an inmate or an inmate's representative consistent with other law applicable to consent.

(b) Consent is not required if the correctional facility has made reasonable efforts to obtain the representative's consent and consent cannot be obtained within 24 hours of a significant exposure.

(c) If testing of available blood occurs without consent because the inmate is unconscious or unable to provide consent, and a representative cannot be located, the correctional facility shall provide the information required in section 241.332 to the inmate or representative whenever it is possible to do so.

(d) If an inmate dies before an opportunity to consent to blood collection or testing under sections 241.33 to 241.342, the correctional facility does not need consent of the inmate's representative for purposes of sections 241.33 to 241.342.
