(Cite as: 18 V.S.A. § 7708)
  • § 7708. Surgical operations

    If the superintendent finds that a patient supported by the State requires a surgical operation or that a surgical operation would promote the possibility of his or her discharge from the hospital, the superintendent, with the consent of the patient, his or her attorney, his or her legally appointed guardian, if any, or next of kin, if any be known, may make the necessary arrangements with some surgeon and hospital for the operation. The expense of the operation shall be borne by the State in the same proportion as the patient is supported by the State. (Added 1967, No. 305 (Adj. Sess.), § 1, eff. Oct. 1, 1968.)
