(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2028)
Administrative review; certification of record.
(a) All final administrative decisions of the Department are
subject to judicial review pursuant to the provisions of the Administrative
Review Law, and all rules adopted pursuant thereto. The term
"administrative decision" is defined as in Section 3-101 of the Code
of Civil Procedure.
(b) Proceedings for judicial review shall be commenced in the circuit court
of the county in which the party applying for review resides; but if the
party is not a resident of this State, venue shall be in Sangamon
(c) The Department shall not be required to certify any record to the court, to file an answer in court, or to otherwise appear in any court in a judicial review proceeding unless and until the Department has received from the plaintiff payment of the costs of furnishing and certifying the record, which costs shall be determined by the Department. Exhibits shall be certified without cost. Failure on the part of the plaintiff to file a receipt in court is grounds for dismissal of the action. During the pendency and hearing of any and all judicial proceedings incident to the disciplinary action the sanctions imposed upon the accused by the Department because of acts or omissions related to the delivery of direct patient care as specified in the Department's final administrative decision, shall, as a matter of public policy, remain in full force and effect in order to protect the public pending final resolution of any of the proceedings.
