The Department must offer an
opportunity for informal dispute resolution concerning
and standards before the advisory committee under subsection (b) of Section
2310-560 of the Department of Public Health Powers and Duties Law of the Civil
Administrative Code of Illinois. Participants in this process must include
representatives from the Department, representatives of the hospital, and

facilities. If the Department does not resolve disputed deficiencies after
the informal dispute resolution process, the Department must provide a written
explanation to the hospital of why the deficiencies have not been removed from
the statement of deficiencies.
