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.

210 ILCS 49/1-101.3

    (210 ILCS 49/1-101.3)
    Sec. 1-101.3. Legislative findings. Illinois is committed to providing behavioral health services in the most community-integrated settings possible, based on the needs of consumers who qualify for State support. This goal is consistent with federal law and regulations and recent court decrees. A variety of services and settings are necessary to ensure that people with serious mental illness receive high quality care that is oriented toward their safety, rehabilitation, and recovery.
    The State of Illinois has an inordinately high inpatient hospitalization rate for behavioral health services. This is not productive for those needing behavioral health services. It is also the least cost effective form of behavioral health delivery possible. The General Assembly finds that alternatives to inpatient hospitalization for behavioral health are necessary to both improve outcomes and reduce costs.
    Residential settings are an important component of the system of behavioral health care that Illinois is developing. When residential treatment is necessary, these facilities must offer high quality rehabilitation and recovery care, help consumers achieve and maintain their highest level of independent functioning, and prepare them to live in permanent supportive housing and other community-integrated settings. Facilities licensed under this Act will be multi-faceted facilities that provide triage and crisis stabilization to inpatient hospitalization, provide stabilization for those in post crisis stabilization, and provide transitional living assistance to prepare those with serious mental illness to reintegrate successfully into community living settings. Those licensed under this Act will provide care under a coordinated care model and seek appropriate national accreditation and provide productive and measurable outcomes.

    (210 ILCS 49/1-101.5)
    Sec. 1-101.5. Prior law.
    (a) This Act provides for licensure of long term care facilities that are federally designated as institutions for the mentally diseased on the effective date of this Act and specialize in providing services to individuals with a serious mental illness. On and after the effective date of this Act, these facilities shall be governed by this Act instead of the Nursing Home Care Act. The existence of a current or pending administrative hearing, notice of violation, or other enforcement action, except for a pending notice of revocation, authorized under the Nursing Home Care Act shall not be a barrier to the provisional licensure of a facility under this Act. Provisional licensure under this Act shall not relieve a facility from the responsibility for the payment of any past, current, or future fines or penalties, or for any other enforcement remedy, imposed upon the facility under the Nursing Home Care Act.
    (b) All consent decrees that apply to facilities federally designated as institutions for the mentally diseased shall continue to apply to facilities licensed under this Act.
    (c) A facility licensed under this Act may voluntarily close, and the facility may reopen in an underserved region of the State, if the facility receives a certificate of need from the Health Facilities and Services Review Board. At no time shall the total number of licensed beds under this Act exceed the total number of licensed beds existing on July 22, 2013 (the effective date of Public Act 98-104).

A waiver issued pursuant to this Section shall be valid only while the consumer is immobile or while the criteria supporting the waiver exist. The facility shall provide for or arrange for any required fingerprint-based checks to be taken on the premises of the facility. If a fingerprint-based check is required, the facility shall arrange for it to be conducted in a manner that is respectful of the consumer's dignity and that minimizes any emotional or physical hardship to the consumer.

All evaluations conducted on convicted or registered sex offenders under this Act shall be conducted by sex offender evaluators approved by the Sex Offender Management Board.
    (d) The Department of State Police shall provide the Criminal History Report to a licensed forensic psychologist. After (i) consideration of the Criminal History Report, (ii) consultation with the facility administrator or the facility medical director, or both, regarding the mental and physical condition of the identified offender, and (iii) reviewing the facility's file on the identified offender, including all incident reports, all information regarding medication and medication compliance, and all information regarding previous discharges or transfers from other facilities, the licensed forensic psychologist shall prepare an Identified Offender Report and Recommendation. The Identified Offender Report and Recommendation shall detail whether and to what extent the identified offender's criminal history necessitates the implementation of security measures within the long-term care facility. If the identified offender is a convicted or registered sex offender or if the Identified Offender Report and Recommendation reveals that the identified offender poses a significant risk of harm to others within the facility, the offender shall be required to have his or her own room within the facility.
    (e) The licensed forensic psychologist shall complete the Identified Offender Report and Recommendation within 14 business days after receiving the Criminal History Report and shall promptly provide the Identified Offender Report and Recommendation to the Department of State Police, which shall provide the Identified Offender Report and Recommendation to the following:

    Sec. 4-104.5. Waiver of compliance. Upon application by a facility, the Director may grant or renew the waiver of the facility's compliance with a rule or standard for a period not to exceed the duration of the current license or, in the case of an application for license renewal, the duration of the renewal period. The waiver may be conditioned upon the facility taking action prescribed by the Director as a measure equivalent to compliance. In determining whether to grant or renew a waiver, the Director shall consider the duration and basis for any current waiver with respect to the same rule or standard and the validity and effect upon patient health and safety of extending it on the same basis, the effect upon the health and safety of consumers, the quality of consumer care, the facility's history of compliance with the rules and standards of this Act and the facility's attempts to comply with the particular rule or standard in question. Upon request by a facility, the Department must evaluate or allow for an evaluation of compliance with the Life Safety Code using the Fire Safety Evaluation System. In determining whether to grant or renew a waiver of a standard pertaining to Chapter 33 of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 101 Life Safety Code, the Director shall use Fire Safety Evaluation Systems in determining whether to grant or renew the waiver. The Department may provide, by rule, for the automatic renewal of waivers concerning physical plant requirements upon the renewal of a license. The Department shall renew waivers relating to physical plant standards issued in accordance with this Section at the time of the indicated reviews, unless it can show why such waivers should not be extended for either of the following reasons:
        (1) the condition of the physical plant has
    
deteriorated or its use substantially changed so that the basis upon which the waiver was issued is materially different; or
        (2) the facility is renovated or substantially
    
remodeled in such a way as to permit compliance with the applicable rules and standards without a substantial increase in cost.
    A copy of each waiver application and each waiver granted or renewed shall be on file with the Department and available for public inspection.
    No penalty or fine may be assessed for a condition for which the facility has received a variance or waiver of a standard.
    Waivers granted to a facility by the Department under any other law shall not be considered by the Department in its determination of a facility's compliance with the requirements of this Act, including, but not limited to, compliance with the Life Safety Code.

The license shall remain valid as long as a facility remains in compliance with the licensure provisions established in rule. Provisional licenses issued upon initial licensure as a specialized mental health rehabilitation facility shall expire at the end of a 3-year period, which commences on the date the provisional license is issued. Issuance of a provisional license for any reason other than initial licensure (including, but not limited to, change of ownership, location, number of beds, or services) shall not extend the maximum 3-year period, at the end of which a facility must be licensed pursuant to Section 4-201. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Act or the Specialized Mental Health Rehabilitation Facilities Code, 77 Ill. Admin. Code 380, to the contrary, if a facility has received notice from the Department that its application for provisional licensure to provide recovery and rehabilitation services has been accepted as complete and the facility has attested in writing to the Department that it will comply with the staff training plan approved by the Division of Mental Health, then a provisional license for recovery and rehabilitation services shall be issued to the facility within 60 days after the Department determines that the facility is in compliance with the requirements of the Life Safety Code in accordance with Section 4-104.5 of this Act.

    During the provisional licensure period, the Department shall conduct State licensure surveys as well as a conformance standard review to determine compliance with timetables and benchmarks associated with the accreditation process. Timetables and benchmarks shall be met in accordance with the preferred accrediting organization conformance standards and recommendations and shall include, but not be limited to, conducting a comprehensive facility self-evaluation in accordance with an established national accreditation program. The facility shall submit all data reporting and outcomes required by accrediting organization to the Department of Public Health for review to determine progress towards accreditation. Accreditation status shall supplement but not replace the State's licensure surveys of facilities licensed under this Act and their certified programs and services to determine the extent to which these facilities provide high quality interventions, especially evidence-based practices, appropriate to the assessed clinical needs of individuals in the 4 certified levels of care.
    Except for incidents involving the potential for harm, serious harm, death, or substantial facility failure to address a serious systemic issue within 60 days, findings of the facility's root cause analysis of problems and the facility's Quality Assessment and Performance Improvement program in accordance with item (22) of Section 4-104 shall not be used as a basis for non-compliance.
    The Department shall have the authority to hire licensed practitioners of the healing arts and qualified mental health professionals to consult with and participate in survey and inspection activities.

    (210 ILCS 49/4-109)
    Sec. 4-109. License sanctions and revocation.
    (a) The Department may revoke a license for any failure to substantially comply with this Act and the rules promulgated under this Act, including, but not limited to, the following:
        (1) fails to correct deficiencies identified as a
    
result of an on-site survey by the Department and fails to submit a plan of correction within 30 days after receipt of the notice of violation;
        (2) submits false information either on Department
    
forms, required certifications, plans of correction or during an on-site inspection;
        (3) refuses to permit or participate in a
    
scheduled or unscheduled survey; or
        (4) willfully violates any rights of individuals
    
being served.
    (b) The Department may refuse to license or relicense a facility if the owner or authorized representative or licensee has been convicted of a felony related to the provision of healthcare or mental health services, as shown by a certified copy of the court of conviction.
    (c) Facilities, as a result of an on-site survey, shall be recognized according to levels of compliance with standards as set forth in this Act. Facilities with findings from Level 1 to Level 3 will be considered to be in good standing with the Department. Findings from Level 3 to Level 5 will result in a notice of violations, a plan of correction and defined sanctions. Findings resulting in Level 6 will result in a notice of violations and defined sanction. The levels of compliance are:
        (1) Level 1: Full compliance with this Act and the
    
rules promulgated under this Act.
        (2) Level 2: Acceptable compliance with this Act
    
and the rules promulgated under this Act. No written plan of correction will be required from the licensee.
        (3) Level 3: Partial compliance with this Act and
    
the rules promulgated under this Act. An administrative warning is issued. The licensee shall submit a written plan of correction.
        (4) Level 4: Minimal compliance with this Act and
    
the rules promulgated under this Act. The licensee shall submit a written plan of correction, and the Department will issue a probationary license. A resurvey shall occur within 90 days.
        (5) Level 5: Unsatisfactory compliance with this
    
Act and the rules promulgated under this Act. The facility shall submit a written plan of correction, and the Department will issue a restricted license. A resurvey shall occur within 60 days.
        (6) Level 6: Revocation of the license to provide
    
services. Revocation may occur as a result of a licensee's consistent and repeated failure to take necessary corrective actions to rectify documented violations, or the failure to protect clients from situations that produce an imminent risk.
    (d) Prior to initiating formal action to sanction a license, the Department shall allow the licensee an opportunity to take corrective action to eliminate or ameliorate a violation of this Act except in cases in which the Department determines that emergency action is necessary to protect the public or individual interest, safety, or welfare.
    (e) Subsequent to an on-site survey, the Department shall issue a written notice to the licensee. The Department shall specify the particular Sections of this Act or the rules promulgated under this Act, if any, with which the facility is not compliant. The Department's notice shall require any corrective actions be taken within a specified time period as required by this Act.
    (f) Sanctions shall be imposed according to the following definitions:
        (1) Administrative notice: A written notice issued
    
by the Department that specifies rule violations requiring a written plan of correction with time frames for corrections to be made and a notice that any additional violation of this Act or the rules promulgated under this Act may result in a higher level sanction. (Level 3)
        (2) Probation: Compliance with this Act and the
    
rules promulgated under this Act is minimally acceptable and necessitates immediate corrective action. Individuals' life safety or quality of care are not in jeopardy. The probationary period is time limited to 90 days. During the probationary period, the facility must make corrective changes sufficient to bring the facility back into good standing with the Department. Failure to make corrective changes within that given time frame may result in a determination to initiate a higher-level sanction. The admission of new individuals shall be prohibited during the probationary period. (Level 4)
        (3) Restricted license: A licensee is sanctioned
    
for unsatisfactory compliance. The admission of new individuals shall be prohibited during the restricted licensure period. Corrective action sufficient to bring the licensee back into good standing with the Department must be taken within 60 days. During the restricted licensure period a monitor will be assigned to oversee the progress of the facility in taking corrective action. If corrective actions are not taken, the facility will be subject to a higher-level sanction. (Level 5)
        (4) Revocation: Revocation of the license is
    
withdrawal by formal actions of the license. The revocation shall be in effect until such time that the provider submits a re-application and the licensee can demonstrate its ability to operate in good standing with the Department. The Department has the right not to reinstate a license. If revocation occurs as a result of imminent risk, all individuals shall be immediately relocated and all funding will be transferred. (Level 6)
        (5) Financial penalty: A financial penalty may be
    
imposed upon finding of violation in any one or combination of the provisions of this Act. In determining an appropriate financial penalty, the Department may consider the deterrent effect of the penalty on the organization and on other providers, the nature of the violation, the degree to which the violation resulted in a benefit to the organization or harm to the public, and any other relevant factor to be examined in mitigation or aggravation of the organization's conduct. The financial penalty may be imposed in conjunction with other sanctions or separately. Higher level sanctions may be imposed in situations where there are repeat violations.

    (b) If a licensee contests the Department's decision regarding a Level 4 to 6 citation or penalty, it can request a hearing by submitting a written request within 20 working days of the Department's dispute resolution decision. The Department shall notify the licensee of the time and place of the hearing not less than 14 days prior to the hearing date.
    (c) A license may not be denied or revoked unless the licensee is given written notice of the grounds for the Department's action.
