(210 ILCS 45/3-508)
(from Ch. 111 1/2, par. 4153-508)
A receiver appointed under this Act:
(a) Shall exercise those powers and shall perform
those duties set out by the court.
(b) Shall operate the facility in such a manner as to
assure safety and adequate health care for the residents.
(c) Shall have the same rights to possession of the
building in which the facility is located and of all goods and fixtures in the building at the time the petition for receivership is filed as the owner would have had if the receiver had not been appointed, and of all assets of the facility. The receiver shall take such action as is reasonably necessary to protect or conserve the assets or property of which the receiver takes possession, or the proceeds from any transfer thereof, and may use them only in the performance of the powers and duties set forth in this Section and by order of the court.
(d) May use the building, fixtures, furnishings and
any accompanying consumable goods in the provision of care and services to residents and to any other persons receiving services from the facility at the time the petition for receivership was filed. The receiver shall collect payments for all goods and services provided to residents or others during the period of the receivership at the same rate of payment charged by the owners at the time the petition for receivership was filed.
(e) May correct or eliminate any deficiency in the
structure or furnishings of the facility which endangers the safety or health of residents while they remain in the facility, provided the total cost of correction does not exceed $3,000. The court may order expenditures for this purpose in excess of $3,000 on application from the receiver after notice to the owner and hearing.
(f) May let contracts and hire agents and employees
to carry out the powers and duties of the receiver under this Section.
(g) Except as specified in Section 3-510, shall honor
all leases, mortgages and secured transactions governing the building in which the facility is located and all goods and fixtures in the building of which the receiver has taken possession, but only to the extent of payments which, in the case of a rental agreement, are for the use of the property during the period of the receivership, or which, in the case of a purchase agreement, come due during the period of the receivership.
(h) Shall have full power to direct and manage and to
discharge employees of the facility, subject to any contract rights they may have. The receiver shall pay employees at the same rate of compensation, including benefits, that the employees would have received from the owner. Receivership does not relieve the owner of any obligation to employees not carried out by the receiver.
(i) Shall, if any resident is transferred or
discharged, follow the procedures set forth in Part 4 of this Article.
(j) Shall be entitled to and shall take possession of
all property or assets of residents which are in the possession of a facility or its owner. The receiver shall preserve all property, assets and records of residents of which the receiver takes possession and shall provide for the prompt transfer of the property, assets and records to the new placement of any transferred resident.
(k) Shall report to the court on any actions he has
taken to bring the facility into compliance with this Act or with Title XVIII or XIX of the Social Security Act that he believes should be continued when the receivership is terminated in order to protect the health, safety or welfare of the residents.
