Illinois Compiled Statutes
Information maintained by the Legislative
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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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.

(a) The Department shall deny an application for a license,
or revoke or refuse to renew the license of a community mental health or
developmental services agency, or refuse to issue a license to the holder
of a temporary permit, if the Department determines that the applicant,
agency or permit holder has not complied with a provision of this Act, the
Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities Code, or applicable Department
rules and regulations. Specific grounds for denial or revocation of a
license, or refusal to renew a license or to
issue a license to the holder of a temporary permit, shall include but not be limited to:
(1) Submission of false information either on
Department licensure forms or during an inspection;

(5) Failure to submit or implement a plan of
correction within the specified time period; or
(6) Failure to submit a workplace violence
prevention plan in compliance with the Health Care Workplace Violence Prevention Act.
(b) If the Department determines that the operation of a community mental health
or developmental services agency or one or more of the programs or
placements certified by the agency under this Act jeopardizes the health,
safety or welfare of the recipients served by the agency, the Department
may immediately revoke the agency's license and may direct the agency to
withdraw recipients from any such program or placement. If an agency's license is revoked under this subsection, then the Department or the Department's agents shall have unimpeded, immediate, and full access to the recipients served by that agency and the recipients' medications, records, and personal possessions in order to ensure a timely, safe, and smooth transition of those individuals from the program or placement.
(c) Upon revocation of an agency's license under subsection (b) of this Section, the agency shall continue providing for the health, safety, and welfare of the individuals that the agency was serving at the time the agency's license was revoked during the period of transition. The private, not-for-profit corporation designated by the Governor to administer the State plan to protect and advocate for the rights of persons with developmental disabilities under Section 1 of the Protection and Advocacy for Persons with Developmental Disabilities Act, contingent on State funding from the Department, shall have unimpeded, immediate, and full access to recipients and recipients' guardians to inform them of the recipients' and recipients' guardians' rights and options during the revocation and transition process.
(d) The Office of Inspector General of the Department of Human Services shall continue to have jurisdiction over an agency and the individuals it served at the time the agency's license was revoked for up to one year after the date that the license was revoked.
