Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Systems Act. Provides that the Illinois Department of Public Health shall have the authority to promulgate minimum standards for critical care transport through rules adopted by the Department. Defines "critical care transport" to mean an advanced level of Pre-hospital and Inter-hospital care utilizing specially trained paramedics, specially trained nurses, and other specialized healthcare providers to deliver advanced or highly specialized care above or beyond the level of current paramedic practice. Establishes minimum standards for critical care transport programs. Grants the Department the authority to suspend, revoke, or refuse to issue or renew (rather than suspend, revoke, or refuse to renew) the license of any EMT that has been convicted by any lawful court of a felony criminal offense involving unlawful physical injury to a child under the age of 13 or an adult over the age of 65. Contains provisions concerning application, testing, certification, and licensing fees for First Responders, EMS Lead Instructors, Emergency Medical Dispatchers, Trauma Nurse Specialists, Pre-Hospital Register Nurses, and Emergency Communication Register Nurses. Makes other changes. Effective January 1, 2011.

House Floor Amendment No. 1
Adds reference to:
210 ILCS 50/3.160

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the introduced bill, but with the following changes: Changes the definition of "critical care transport". Provides that the Department of Public Health shall have the authority to promulgate minimum standards for critical care transport providers (rather than minimum standards for critical care transport) through rules adopted pursuant to the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Systems Act, and that nothing in Department rules shall restrict a hospital's ability to furnish personnel, equipment, and medical supplies to any vehicle service provider, including a critical care transport provider. Adds reserve ambulances to the list of vehicles that must be specified by level and type on all provider licenses issued by the Department. Provides that no employer shall permit any employee to perform any services for which a license, certificate, or other authorization is required under this Act, unless the employer first makes a good faith attempt to verify that the employee possesses all necessary and valid licenses, certificates, and authorizations required under the Act. Provides that the Department shall have the authority to prohibit any Vehicle Service Provider, whether municipal, private, or hospital-owned, from advertising itself as a critical care transport provider unless it participates in a Department-approved EMS System critical care transport plan. Provides that a Vehicle Service Provider may be charged a fee per transport vehicle to be submitted with an application for licensure and renewal and that the fee shall be set by administrative rule and shall not exceed 100 vehicles per provider. Eliminates language providing that the Department shall have the authority to license, inspect, and promulgate rules governing the use and service placement of reserve ambulances. Makes other changes. Effective January 1, 2011.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 2
Adds language providing that the Department of Public Health shall have the authority to suspend, revoke, or refuse to issue or renew the license of any EMT licensee, after an opportunity for an impartial hearing before a neutral administrative law judge appointed by the Director of the Department of Public Health; and that the Department shall have the authority to suspend, revoke, or refuse to issue or renew the license of any EMT licensee where the preponderance of evidence presented at the hearing shows that the licensee has been convicted (or entered a plea of guilty or nolo-contendere) by a court of competent jurisdiction of a Class X, Class 1, or Class 2 felony in this State or an out-of-state equivalent offense (rather than had been convicted (or entered a plea of guilty or nolo-contendere) by a law court of a felony offense, which, upon conviction, subjects the convicted licensee to a minimum imprisonment of 2 years or more). Provides that a First Responder who exclusively serves as a volunteer for units of local government or a not-for-profit organization with a population base of less than 5,000 may submit an application to the Department for a waiver of specified fees. Provides that the Department shall have the authority and responsibility to (i) charge each candidate for EMS Lead Instructor a fee to be submitted with an application for an examination, an application for certification, and an application for recertification (rather than an application for renewal); and (ii) charge each Pre-Hospital RN applicant and ECRN applicant a fee for certification and recertification (rather than certification, licensure, and license renewal).
