Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the State Finance Act and the Hospital Licensing Act. Creates the Hospital Licensure Fund as a special fund in the State treasury. Establishes a $30 license fee per bed for hospitals applying for a license, provided that a lesser amount may be established by administrative rule of the Department of Public Health, if the Department, in consultation with the Department of Healthcare and Family Services, determines that $30 per bed would exceed the limitations on health care-related taxes imposed by federal law that, if violated, would result in reductions to the amount of federal financial participation received by the State for Medicaid expenditures. Further provides that the Department shall deposit all fees and fines collected in relation to the licensure of hospitals into the Hospital Licensure Fund for the purpose of providing programs, information, or assistance designed to improve patient safety and quality in hospitals. Effective immediately.

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Systems Act, the Hospital Emergency Service Act, the Hospital Licensing Act, and the State Finance Act.

Reinserts provisions establishing the Hospital Licensure Fund as a special fund in the State treasury and adds provisions concerning the sources of funding and permissible disbursements for the Fund. Provides that rehabilitation hospitals and long-term acute care hospitals are hospitals that are not required to provide hospital emergency services. Amends the Illinois Adverse Health Care Event Reporting Law of 2005. Defines "adverse health care event" as an event identified as a serious reportable event by the National Quality Forum and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services on the effective date of the amendatory Act. Provides that the Department of Public Health shall adopt, by rule, the list of adverse health care events, and provides that if the National Quality Forum or the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services revises its list of serious reportable events, then the term "adverse health care event" shall be similarly revised. Removes language concerning certain reportable events. Provides that if the adverse health care events are revised, the Department of Public Health shall notify all affected health care facilities promptly. Makes other changes. Effective immediately.

Effective immediately.
