(210 ILCS 45/3A-101)
Not later than June 30, 1996,
the Department shall enter
one or more cooperative arrangements with the Illinois Department of Public
the Department on Aging, the Office of the State Fire Marshal, and any other
appropriate entity for the purpose of developing a single survey for nursing
facilities, including but not limited to facilities funded under Title XVIII
or Title XIX of the federal Social Security Act, or both, which shall be
administered and conducted solely by the Department.
The Departments shall test the single survey process on a pilot basis, with
both the Departments of Public Aid and Public Health represented on the
consolidated survey team. The pilot will sunset June 30, 1997. After June 30,
1997, unless otherwise determined by the Governor, a single survey shall be
implemented by the Department of Public Health which would not preclude staff
from the Department of Healthcare and Family Services (formerly Department of Public Aid) from going on-site to nursing facilities to
perform necessary audits and reviews which shall not replicate the single State
agency survey required by this Act.
This Article shall not
apply to community or intermediate care facilities for persons with developmental disabilities.
