Illinois Compiled Statutes

Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
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 Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

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.

Every sanitarium board established under this Act shall provide sanitarium care and clinical and follow-up services free for the benefit of the inhabitants of the city or village which established it, if they are afflicted with tuberculosis. They shall be entitled to occupancy, nursing, care, medicines, and attendance according to the rules and regulations prescribed by the board of directors. The board of directors may adopt reasonable rules and regulations concerning the use of the facilities established pursuant to this Act in order to render the use of these facilities of the greatest benefit to the greatest number, and the board may exclude from the use of the sanitarium those inhabitants and other persons who wilfully violate the board's rules and regulations. The board may not, however, prescribe rules and regulations which conflict with Section 11-29-8.1 of this Act, and a determination of whether a person is an inhabitant or resident of the city or village for purposes of this Act shall be based on Section 11-29-8.1. Except as authorized and permitted by Section 11-29-7, no person so afflicted with tuberculosis may be compelled to enter the sanitarium, or any of its branches, dispensaries, or other auxiliary institutions without first giving his written consent, or in case of a minor or one under legal disability, the written consent of the parents or, guardian, as the case may be.
    The board upon request or by consent of persons afflicted, or the legal guardians, or parents thereof, shall extend the benefits and privileges of the institution, under proper rules and regulations, into the homes of the persons afflicted with tuberculosis, shall furnish nurses, instruction, medicines, attendance, and all other aid necessary to effect a cure, and shall do all things in and about the treatment and care of persons so afflicted which will have a tendency to effect a cure of the persons afflicted with tuberculosis and to eradicate tuberculosis in that city or village, including the discovery of undiagnosed tuberculosis. No person shall be compelled to undergo an examination or test for tuberculosis if he or she objects thereto on the ground that it is contrary to his or her religious convictions, unless there is probable cause to suspect that he or she is infected with tuberculosis in a communicable stage.
    Boards of directors shall provide out-patient clinical and follow-up services to tuberculosis patients, in accordance with minimum standards prescribed therefor, by the director of the Department of Public Health.
    The board of directors may make such arrangements and agreements with public or private health agencies for cooperation and assistance in providing case-finding services and out-patient clinical and follow-up services as it considers necessary or desirable.
    The board may extend the privileges and use of the sanitarium and treatment to afflicted persons who reside outside of the city or village, upon such terms and conditions as the board may prescribe by its rules and regulations consistent with Section 11-29-8.1.
    In cities and villages which have a population of less than 500,000 inhabitants, the board may also extend the privileges and use of the sanitarium to the inhabitants of such city or village who are afflicted with chronic pulmonary diseases other than tuberculosis, and inhabitants who are convalescent or chronically ill, or both, and provide care and treatment for such persons when part of the facilities of the sanitarium are vacant and not needed for care and treatment of tuberculosis inhabitants of such city or village, upon such terms and conditions as the board may prescribe by its rules and regulations, provided such facilities shall be separate so that tuberculosis patients shall be isolated from those afflicted with chronic pulmonary diseases other than tuberculosis, and those who are convalescent or chronically ill patients. However, if care and treatment is provided for such persons, the charge for providing such care and treatment shall not be less than the actual cost of providing such care and treatment.
    The board may use funds secured from taxes levied under the provisions of this Act in providing sanitarium care of tuberculosis patients in private or public sanitariums.
