(210 ILCS 5/10c)
(from Ch. 111 1/2, par. 157-8.10c)
Plan of correction.
(a) Each facility served with a notice of violation under Section 10b of
this Act shall file with the Department a written plan of correction, which
is subject to approval of the Department, within 10 days of receipt of such
notice. Such plan of correction shall state with particularity the method
by which the facility intends to correct each violation and shall contain a
stated date by which each violation shall be corrected.
(b) If the Department rejects a plan of correction, it shall send notice
of the rejection and the reason for the rejection to the licensee. The
facility shall have 10 days after receipt of the notice of rejection to
submit a modified plan. If the modified plan is not timely submitted, or if
the modified plan is rejected, the facility shall follow a plan of
correction imposed by the Department.
(c) If a facility desires to contest any Department action under this
Section it shall send a written request for a hearing under Section 10g to
the Department within 10 days of receipt of the notice of the contested
action. The Department shall commence the hearing as provided in Section
10g. Whenever possible, all actions of the Department under this Section
arising out of a single violation shall be contested and determined at a
single hearing. Issues decided as the result of the hearing process may not
be reheard at subsequent hearings under this Act, but such determinations
may be used as grounds for other administrative action by the Department
pursuant to this Act.
