The Hospital Review Board (HRB) hears the Minnesota Sex Offender Program's (MSOP) clients' concerns regarding the conditions affecting their care, and provides verbal or written recommendations to the MSOP administrators.
Hospital Review Boards originally date back to 1967 Minn. Laws Chap. 638 Sec. 16. They were established to inspect the living conditions of patients in the state mental hospitals. The function and role of the hospital review boards changed as the state's programs for the mentally ill evolved.
Meetings may occur up to twice monthly at Moose Lake facility and quarterly at St. Peter facility. Each client receives approximately 15 minutes to present his or her issues to the HRB.
Each panel consists of one psychologist, one attorney, and one public member. Members must not be actively employed by or recently employed by the Minnesota Department of Human Services.
Commissioner of Human Services
