(225 ILCS 60/44)
(from Ch. 111, par. 4400-44)
(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2022)
None of the disciplinary functions, powers
and duties enumerated in this Act shall be exercised by the
Department except upon the action and report in writing of
the Disciplinary Board.
In all instances, under this Act, in which the
Disciplinary Board has rendered a recommendation to the
Secretary with respect to a particular physician, the
Secretary shall, in the event that he or she disagrees with
or takes action contrary to the recommendation of the
Disciplinary Board, file with the Disciplinary Board his or her specific written reasons of
disagreement with the Disciplinary Board. Such reasons
shall be filed within 30 days of the occurrence of the
Secretary's contrary position having been taken.
The action and report in writing of a majority of the
Disciplinary Board designated is sufficient authority upon
which the Secretary may act.
Whenever the Secretary is satisfied that substantial
justice has not been done either in an examination, or in a
formal disciplinary action, or refusal to restore a license,
he or she may order a reexamination or rehearing by the
same or other examiners.
