76-1306. Transfer of persons in institutions under supervision of secretary for aging and disability services to state security hospital. The secretary for aging and disability services may transfer any patient, other than a minor, in any institution under the supervision of the secretary to the state security hospital whenever the secretary determines that such patient is suffering from a mental illness and when the secretary determines that: (1) Due to the behavior of the patient, the patient is a danger to the other patients in the institution; (2) that the patient is a security risk; or (3) that the patient is charged or convicted of felony crimes and, therefore, is unable to receive proper care or treatment in a facility other than the state security hospital. Any patient transferred to the state security hospital under this section shall be assigned quarters separate from those individuals who have been transferred from penal institutions or committed thereto by courts under the Kansas code of criminal procedure.
