HB 1565 (2018)


Requires the Department of Corrections to pursue accreditation of the secure psychiatric unit of the state prison as a psychiatric hospital. The Senate amended the bill to instead require accreditation as a behavioral health facility by the National Commission on Correctional Health Care. This bill also requires the department to submit a biennial report on provisions, standards, or practices that should be revised to improve treatment.
