The state commissioner of health is hereby authorized and directed to adopt and publish, in the same manner as rules and regulations of the state department of health are published, rules and regulations governing the operation of county sanatoriums. It shall be the duty of the board of trustees of any such sanatorium to observe such rules and regulations. Wilful failure or refusal to do so shall constitute grounds for removal. Subject to this act and to such rules and regulations, each such board of trustees shall operate the sanatorium under its charge and shall employ a medical superintendent, a suitable number of nurses, and such other employees as may be necessary and may fix the compensation thereof. Such compensation shall be paid out of the maintenance fund of the sanatorium in the same manner as the salaries of other county employees are paid. Money to defray the expenses of maintenance and operation shall be paid by the county treasurer having such fund in his custody on the warrant of the president of the board of trustees of the sanatorium, countersigned by the secretary.
