(410 ILCS 70/2) (from Ch. 111 1/2, par. 87-2)
    Sec. 2. Hospital and approved pediatric health care facility requirements for sexual assault plans.
    (a) Every hospital required to be licensed by the Department pursuant to the Hospital Licensing Act, or operated under the University of Illinois Hospital Act that provides general medical and surgical hospital services shall provide either (i) transfer services to all sexual assault survivors, (ii) medical forensic services to all sexual assault survivors, or (iii) transfer services to pediatric sexual assault survivors and medical forensic services to sexual assault survivors 13 years old or older, in accordance with rules adopted by the Department.
    In addition, every such hospital, regardless of whether or not a request is made for reimbursement, shall submit to the Department a plan to provide either (i) transfer services to all sexual assault survivors, (ii) medical forensic services to all sexual assault survivors, or (iii) transfer services to pediatric sexual assault survivors and medical forensic services to sexual assault survivors 13 years old or older. The Department shall approve such plan for either (i) transfer services to all sexual assault survivors, (ii) medical forensic services to all sexual assault survivors, or (iii) transfer services to pediatric sexual assault survivors and medical forensic services to sexual assault survivors 13 years old or older, if it finds that the implementation of the proposed plan would provide (i) transfer services or (ii) medical forensic services for sexual assault survivors in accordance with the requirements of this Act and provide sufficient protections from the risk of pregnancy to sexual assault survivors.
    The Department may not approve a sexual assault transfer plan unless a treatment hospital has agreed, as a part of an areawide treatment plan, to accept sexual assault survivors from the proposed transfer hospital and a transfer to the treatment hospital would not unduly burden the sexual assault survivor.
    In counties with a population of less than 1,000,000, the Department may not approve a sexual assault transfer plan for a hospital located within a 20-mile radius of a 4-year public university, not including community colleges, unless there is a treatment hospital with a sexual assault treatment plan approved by the Department within a 20-mile radius of the 4-year public university.
    A transfer must be in accordance with federal and State laws and local ordinances.
    A treatment hospital with approved pediatric transfer must submit an areawide treatment plan under Section 3 of this Act that includes a written agreement with a treatment hospital stating that the treatment hospital will provide medical forensic services to pediatric sexual assault survivors transferred from the treatment hospital with approved pediatric transfer. The areawide treatment plan may also include an approved pediatric health care facility.
    A transfer hospital must submit an areawide treatment plan under Section 3 of this Act that includes a written agreement with a treatment hospital stating that the treatment hospital will provide medical forensic services to all sexual assault survivors transferred from the transfer hospital. The areawide treatment plan may also include an approved pediatric health care facility.
    Beginning January 1, 2019, each treatment hospital and treatment hospital with approved pediatric transfer shall ensure that emergency department attending physicians, physician assistants, advanced practice registered nurses, and registered professional nurses providing clinical services, who do not meet the definition of a qualified medical provider in Section 1a of this Act, receive a minimum of 2 hours of sexual assault training by July 1, 2020 or until the treatment hospital or treatment hospital with approved pediatric transfer certifies to the Department, in a form and manner prescribed by the Department, that it employs or contracts with a qualified medical provider in accordance with subsection (a-7) of Section 5, whichever occurs first.
    After July 1, 2020 or once a treatment hospital or a treatment hospital with approved pediatric transfer certifies compliance with subsection (a-7) of Section 5, whichever occurs first, each treatment hospital and treatment hospital with approved pediatric transfer shall ensure that emergency department attending physicians, physician assistants, advanced practice registered nurses, and registered professional nurses providing clinical services, who do not meet the definition of a qualified medical provider in Section 1a of this Act, receive a minimum of 2 hours of continuing education on responding to sexual assault survivors every 2 years. Protocols for training shall be included in the hospital's sexual assault treatment plan.
    Sexual assault training provided under this subsection may be provided in person or online and shall include, but not be limited to:
        (1) information provided on the provision of medical
    
forensic services;
        (2) information on the use of the Illinois Sexual
    
Assault Evidence Collection Kit;
        (3) information on sexual assault epidemiology,
    
neurobiology of trauma, drug-facilitated sexual assault, child sexual abuse, and Illinois sexual assault-related laws; and
        (4) information on the hospital's sexual
    
assault-related policies and procedures.
    The online training made available by the Office of the Attorney General under subsection (b) of Section 10 may be used to comply with this subsection.
    (b) An approved pediatric health care facility may provide medical forensic services, in accordance with rules adopted by the Department, to all pediatric sexual assault survivors who present for medical forensic services in relation to injuries or trauma resulting from a sexual assault. These services shall be provided by a qualified medical provider.
    A pediatric health care facility must participate in or submit an areawide treatment plan under Section 3 of this Act that includes a treatment hospital. If a pediatric health care facility does not provide certain medical or surgical services that are provided by hospitals, the areawide sexual assault treatment plan must include a procedure for ensuring a sexual assault survivor in need of such medical or surgical services receives the services at the treatment hospital. The areawide treatment plan may also include a treatment hospital with approved pediatric transfer.
    The Department shall review a proposed sexual assault treatment plan submitted by a pediatric health care facility within 60 days after receipt of the plan. If the Department finds that the proposed plan meets the minimum requirements set forth in Section 5 of this Act and that implementation of the proposed plan would provide medical forensic services for pediatric sexual assault survivors, then the Department shall approve the plan. If the Department does not approve a plan, then the Department shall notify the pediatric health care facility that the proposed plan has not been approved. The pediatric health care facility shall have 30 days to submit a revised plan. The Department shall review the revised plan within 30 days after receipt of the plan and notify the pediatric health care facility whether the revised plan is approved or rejected. A pediatric health care facility may not provide medical forensic services to pediatric sexual assault survivors who present with a complaint of sexual assault within a minimum of the last 7 days or who have disclosed past sexual assault by a specific individual and were in the care of that individual within a minimum of the last 7 days until the Department has approved a treatment plan.
    If an approved pediatric health care facility is not open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, it shall post signage at each public entrance to its facility that:
        (1) is at least 14 inches by 14 inches in size;
        (2) directs those seeking services as follows: "If
    
closed, call 911 for services or go to the closest hospital emergency department, (insert name) located at (insert address).";
        (3) lists the approved pediatric health care
    
facility's hours of operation;
        (4) lists the street address of the building;
        (5) has a black background with white bold capital
    
lettering in a clear and easy to read font that is at least 72-point type, and with "call 911" in at least 125-point type;
        (6) is posted clearly and conspicuously on or
    
adjacent to the door at each entrance and, if building materials allow, is posted internally for viewing through glass; if posted externally, the sign shall be made of weather-resistant and theft-resistant materials, non-removable, and adhered permanently to the building; and
        (7) has lighting that is part of the sign itself or
    
is lit with a dedicated light that fully illuminates the sign.
    A copy of the proposed sign must be submitted to the Department and approved as part of the approved pediatric health care facility's sexual assault treatment plan.
    (c) Each treatment hospital, treatment hospital with approved pediatric transfer, and approved pediatric health care facility must enter into a memorandum of understanding with a rape crisis center for medical advocacy services, if these services are available to the treatment hospital, treatment hospital with approved pediatric transfer, or approved pediatric health care facility. With the consent of the sexual assault survivor, a rape crisis counselor shall remain in the exam room during the collection for forensic evidence.
    (d) Every treatment hospital, treatment hospital with approved pediatric transfer, and approved pediatric health care facility's sexual assault treatment plan shall include procedures for complying with mandatory reporting requirements pursuant to (1) the Abused and Neglected Child Reporting Act; (2) the Abused and Neglected Long Term Care Facility Residents Reporting Act; (3) the Adult Protective Services Act; and (iv) the Criminal Identification Act.
    (e) Each treatment hospital, treatment hospital with approved pediatric transfer, and approved pediatric health care facility shall submit to the Department every 6 months, in a manner prescribed by the Department, the following information:
        (1) The total number of patients who presented with a
    
complaint of sexual assault.
        (2) The total number of Illinois Sexual Assault
