§17-5-7. Medical inspection of convict camps.
It shall be the duty of the state road commissioner to
designate some competent physician or physicians to make
inspection of all camps where a convict road force is employed.
It shall be the duty of such physician to make thorough
investigations of the sanitary conditions of such camps each
sixty days and report every inspection to the governor, together
with such recommendations as he may deem necessary; and he shall
furnish copies thereof to the warden of the penitentiary, the
state road commissioner, the West Virginia board of health, and
the local board of health of the county in which such camp is
located. A reasonable compensation to the physician rendering
such services shall be paid by the commissioner.
