Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    (b) The Department shall make available training materials that ensure that all phlebotomists are trained in the most current methods of drawing blood from children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

The Department shall review these materials every 3 years to ensure that they conform with the best available practices.
    (c) The Department shall ensure that health care providers, as that term is defined under the Health Care Services Lien Act, and laboratories, as that term is defined under the Illinois Clinical Laboratory and Blood Bank Act, that employ a phlebotomist incorporate the training described in subsection (b) as part of a phlebotomist's initial employment training and as part of any ongoing training to maintain competencies and certifications as a phlebotomist.
    (d) This Section does not apply to nonprofit blood banks or the affiliated laboratories of nonprofit blood banks.
