Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.

The Secretary of the
Department may, upon receipt of a written
communication from the Secretary of Human Services, the Director of Healthcare and Family Services (formerly Director of Public Aid),
or the Director of Public Health
that continuation of practice of a person licensed under this
Act constitutes an immediate danger to the public, immediately suspend the
license of such person without a hearing. In instances in which the
immediately suspends a license under this Section, a hearing upon
such person's license must be convened by the Department within 30
after such suspension and completed without appreciable delay, such hearing
held to determine whether to recommend to the Secretary that the person's
license be revoked, suspended, placed on probationary status or restored,
or such person be subject to other disciplinary action. In such hearing,
the written communication and any other evidence submitted therewith may be
introduced as evidence against such person; provided, however, the person,
or his or her counsel, shall have the opportunity to discredit or impeach
submit evidence rebutting such evidence.
