(210 ILCS 3/36)
Use of name; patient transfers; consulting committee.
No facility or person shall hold itself out to the public as a "recovery
care center" or "postsurgical recovery care center" unless it is licensed as a
postsurgical recovery care center under this Act.
The Department shall establish by rule criteria for patient transfers to
postsurgical recovery care models. Each facility licensed as a postsurgical
recovery care center shall establish a qualified consulting committee to review
the types of surgical procedures performed in ambulatory surgical treatment
centers and hospitals which intend to transfer patients to the recovery care
center. The committee shall recommend appropriate procedures for approval by
the Department of Public Health. Action on these recommendations by the
Department shall not be unreasonably withheld.
