Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the University of Illinois Hospital Act, Alternative Health Care Delivery Act, Ambulatory Surgical Treatment Center Act, Community Living Facilities Licensing Act, Nursing Home Care Act, MC/DD Act, ID/DD Community Care Act, Specialized Mental Health Rehabilitation Act of 2013, Hospital Licensing Act, and Community-Integrated Living Arrangements Licensure and Certification Act. Provides that for hospitals, alternative health care models, Community Living Facilities, long-term care facilities, MC/DD facilities, ID/DD facilities, specialized mental health rehabilitation facilities, and community-integrated living arrangements, a television in a waiting room provided for use by the general public; in a patient, resident, or consumer room provided for use by patients, residents, or consumers that are being treated; or in a patient, resident, or consumer room provided for use by individuals using or requesting services must have a closed captioning feature activated at all times if the television includes a captioning feature. Requires reasonable efforts to be made to prevent members of the general public and individuals using or requesting services from independently deactivating a captioning feature. Provides that it is not a violation if the captioning feature is deactivated by a member of the general public or an individual using or requesting services, so long as the captioning is reactivated as soon as is practicable by a member of the staff upon knowledge that the deactivation has occurred. Requires that, if there is not a television with a captioning feature available, then a sufficient number of televisions that include a captioning feature must be obtained as soon as is practicable. Defines "closed captioning" and makes other changes.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 2
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the introduced bill as amended by Senate Amendment No. 1 with the following changes: Provides that for hospitals, alternative health care models, Community Living Facilities, long-term care facilities, MC/DD facilities, ID/DD facilities, specialized mental health rehabilitation facilities, and community-integrated living arrangements, reasonable efforts must be made to have activated at all times (rather than providing that closed captioning must be activated at all times) the closed captioning feature on a television in a common area (rather than waiting room) provided for use by the general public or in a patient, resident, or consumer's room or to enable the closed captioning feature when requested to do so by a member of the general public or a patient if the television includes a closed captioning feature. Provides that it is not a violation if a staff member deactivates a closed captioning feature unless the deactivation was done so knowingly or intentionally. Removes language requiring that reasonable efforts be made to prevent members of the general public and individuals using or requesting services from independently deactivating a closed captioning feature. Provides that it is not a violation if the closed captioning feature is deactivated by a member of the general public; a patient, resident, or consumer; or member of the staff if done so at a patient, resident, or consumer's request. Removes language providing that it is not a violation if the closed captioning feature is deactivated so long as the closed captioning is reactivated as soon as is practicable by a staff member upon knowledge of the deactivation. Requires that, if there is not a television with a closed captioning feature available, then it must be ensured that all televisions obtained for common areas and patient rooms after the effective date of the amendatory Act include a closed captioning feature (rather than then a sufficient number of televisions that include a captioning feature must be obtained as soon as is practicable). Provides that nothing in the provisions of the Community Living Facilities Licensing Act, Nursing Home Care Act, MC/DD Act, ID/DD Community Care Act, and Community-Integrated Living Arrangements Licensure and Certification Act concerning closed captioning shall apply to televisions that are privately owned by a resident or third party and not owned by the Community Living Facility, long-term care facility, MC/DD facility, ID/DD facility, or community-integrated living arrangement. Removes movie screens from the definition of "closed captioning". Makes other changes.
