(405 ILCS 5/3-814)
(from Ch. 91 1/2, par. 3-814)
(a) Not more than 30 days after admission under this Article,
the facility director shall file with the court a current treatment plan which
shall include: all the requirements listed in Section 3-209, an evaluation of the recipient's progress and the extent to
which he is benefiting from treatment, the criteria which form the basis for
the determination that the patient is
subject to involuntary admission as defined in Section 1-119, and the specific
behaviors or conditions that demonstrate that the recipient meets these
criteria for continued confinement.
If the facility director is unable to determine any of the required
information, the treatment plan shall include an explanation of why the
facility director is unable to make this determination, what the facility
director is doing to enable himself or herself to determine the information,
and the date by which the facility director expects to be able to make this
determination. The facility director shall forward a copy of the plan to the
State's Attorney, the recipient's attorney, if the recipient is represented by
counsel, the recipient, and any guardian of the recipient.
(b) The purpose of the filing, forwarding, and review of treatment plans
and treatment is to ensure that the recipient is receiving adequate and humane
care and services as defined in Section 1-101.2 and to ensure that the
continues to meet the standards for involuntary confinement.
(c) On request of the recipient or an interested person on his behalf, or on
the court's own initiative,
the court shall review the current treatment
to determine whether its contents comply with the requirements of this
Section and Section 3-209.
A request to review the current treatment plan may be made by the recipient,
or by an interested person on his behalf, 30 days after initial commitment
under Section 3-813, 90 days after the initial commitment, and 90 days after
each additional period of commitment under subsection (b) of Section 3-813.
If the court determines that any of the information required by this Section
or Section 3-209 to be included in the treatment plan is not in the treatment
plan or that the treatment plan does not contain information from which the
court can determine whether the recipient continues to meet the criteria for
continued confinement, the court shall indicate what is lacking and order the
facility director to revise the current treatment plan to comply with this
Section and Section 3-209.
If the recipient has been ordered committed to the facility after
he has been found not guilty by reason of insanity, the treatment plan and
its review shall be subject to the provisions of Section 5-2-4 of the
Unified Code of Corrections.
(d) The recipient or an interested person on his or her behalf may request
hearing or the court on its own motion may order a hearing to review the
treatment being received by the recipient. The court, the recipient, or the
State's Attorney may call witnesses at the hearing.
The court may order any public agency, officer, or
employee to render such information, cooperation, and assistance as is within
its legal authority and as may be appropriate to achieve the objectives
of this Section. The
court may order an independent examination on
its own initiative and shall order such an evaluation if either the recipient
or the State's Attorney so requests and has demonstrated to the court that the
plan cannot be effectively reviewed by the court without such an examination.
Under no circumstances shall the court be required to order an independent
examination pursuant to this Section more than once each year. The examination
shall be conducted by persons authorized to conduct independent examinations
under Section 3-804. If
the court is satisfied that the recipient is benefiting from treatment, it may
continue the original order for the remainder of the admission period. If the
court is not so satisfied, it may modify its original order or
it may order the recipient discharged.
(e) In lieu of a treatment plan, the facility director may file a typed
summary of the treatment plan which contains the information required under
Section 3-209 and subsection (a) of this Section.
