Medical parole is an early release from prison for patients who are very ill. Eligibility requirements include a diagnosis of terminal illness, and patients must be affected by their illness to the degree where they require assistance in caring for themselves. Those inmates who are convicted of murder, manslaughter, or sexual offenses are not eligible, regardless of their medical condition. Procedures are outlined for applying for medical parole, and the system for granting one is detailed.
