Amends the Illinois Act on the Aging, the Nursing Home Care Act, and the Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act. Provides that the Office of State Long Term Care Ombudsman shall: (1) operate an Internet database to aid Illinoisans and their families in making informed choices about long-term care; (2) in collaboration with the Attorney General, create a Consumer Choice Information Report form to be completed by long-term care facilities; (3) develop a database of Consumer Choice Information Reports completed by facilities that includes certain information as identified by the Attorney General; (4) make this information accessible to the public on the Internet by means of a hyperlink labeled "Resident's Right to Know" on the Office's World Wide Web home page; (5) have the authority, with the Attorney General, to ensure that information provided by a facility is accurate; and (6) request a new report from any licensed facility whenever it deems necessary. Requires nursing homes to file annual Consumer Choice Information Reports with the Office beginning July 1, 2008. Provides that a nursing home's violation of the Consumer Choice Information Report provisions is an unlawful practice under the Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act.

 Fiscal Note (Office of the Attorney General)
 HB 3508 has a minimal fiscal impact.

House Floor Amendment No. 1
Adds reference to:
210 ILCS 45/3-210from Ch. 111 1/2, par. 4153-210
210 ILCS 45/3-212from Ch. 111 1/2, par. 4153-212

Replaces everything after the enacting clause with provisions substantially similar to those of House Bill 3508, amending the Illinois Act on the Aging, the Nursing Home Care Act, and the Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act, but with changes that include the following: (1) requires the Office of State Long Term Care Ombudsman ("the Office") to create a Consumer Choice Information Report for each type of licensed long term care facility; (2) adds categories of information to be included in Consumer Choice Information Reports; (3) requires the Office to make information in the Consumer Choice Information Reports accessible to the public, including on the Internet (instead of simply requiring the Office to make the information accessible to the public on the Internet); (4) provides that the Office has the authority to verify (instead of ensure) that information provided by a facility is accurate; (5) provides that Consumer Choice Information Reports must be filed electronically as prescribed by the Office, and deletes a requirement that the first report is due on July 1, 2008; (6) provides that the Department of Public Health shall include verification of the submission of a facility's current Consumer Choice Information Report when conducting an inspection to determine compliance with nursing home licensure requirements and standards; and (7) requires that a facility retain a copy of its current Consumer Choice Information Report for public inspection.
