(225 ILCS 510/12) (from Ch. 111, par. 962)
    Sec. 12. Liability of nurse agencies. Health care facilities are responsible for supervising nurse agency employees assigned or referred to the facilities; however, where a health care facility is found liable for an injury to a patient or resident because of a negligent act performed by a nurse or certified nurse aide employed, assigned or referred by the nurse agency, the health care facility has a right to be compensated by the nurse agency for any and all expenses incurred related to any liability for the nurse agency's negligent hiring. Negligent hiring by a nurse agency shall be the failure of an agency to follow the procedures outlined in Section 13 of this Act. This provision shall not otherwise limit in any way the actions a health care facility may have against a nurse agency at law or in equity.
