Expenses of transportation and bed and board for a child provisionally entrusted to a foster family or an institution other than an establishment shall be charged to the institution operating the child and youth protection centre or the social service centre whose director has taken charge of the situation of the child.

Every institution operating a hospital centre is then bound to admit the child entrusted to it by the director.
