  630.610.  Applications for placement — criteria to be considered. — 1.  If the head of a facility operated by the department determines that placement out of the facility would be appropriate for any patient or resident, the head of the facility shall refer the patient or resident for placement according to the department's rules.  If a patient or resident is accepted and placed under this chapter, then the patient or resident shall be considered as discharged as a patient or resident of the facility and reclassified as a client of the department.

  2.  Any person, his authorized representative, his parent, if the person is a minor, his guardian, a court of competent jurisdiction or a state or private facility or agency having custody of the person may apply for placement of the person under this chapter.

  3.  If the department finds the application to be appropriate after review, it shall provide for or arrange for a comprehensive evaluation, and the preparation of an individualized treatment, habilitation or rehabilitation plan of the person seeking to be placed, whether from a department facility or directly, to determine if he meets the following criteria:

  (1)  The person is affected by a mental disorder, mental illness, intellectual disability, developmental disability or alcohol or drug abuse; and

  (2)  The person is in need of special care, treatment, habilitation or rehabilitation services as described in this chapter, including room or board, or both; provided, however, that no person shall be accepted for placement if the sole reason for the application or referral is that residential placement is necessary for a school-aged child, as defined in chapter 162, to receive an appropriate special education.
