Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Nursing Home Care Act. Provides that all persons seeking admission to a nursing facility shall be verbally screened for risk factors associated with hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) according to guidelines established by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Provides that persons who are identified as being at high risk for hepatitis B, hepatitis C, or HIV shall be offered an opportunity to undergo laboratory testing if they will be admitted to the nursing facility for at least 7 days and are not known to be infected with any of the listed viruses. Provides that all HIV testing shall be conducted in compliance with the AIDS Confidentiality Act and that all persons determined to be susceptible to the hepatitis B virus shall be offered immunization upon admission to any nursing facility. Requires nursing facilities to document a resident's screening for risk factors associated with hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and HIV, and whether or not the resident was immunized against hepatitis B. Effective January 1, 2011.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Provides that all persons determined to be susceptible to the hepatitis B virus shall be offered immunizations within 10 days of admission to any nursing facility (rather than upon admission). Provides an exemption to nursing facilities licensed or regulated by the Illinois Department of Veterans' Affairs.
