Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the University of Illinois Hospital Act, the Ambulatory Surgical Treatment Center Act, the Hospital Licensing Act, and the Pharmacy Practice Act. Requires hospitals and facilities to offer a patient any unused portion of a facility-provided medication upon discharge when it is administered to a patient at the hospital or facility and is required for continuing treatment. Defines "facility-provided medication". Provides that an unused portion of a facility-provided medication required for continuing treatment must be provided to a patient upon discharge when the facility-provided medication is ordered at least 24 hours in advance for surgical procedures. Requires facility-medications to be consistent with labeling requirements under specified provisions of the Pharmacy Practice Act. Provides that if a facility-provided medication is used in an operating room or emergency department setting, the prescriber is responsible for counseling the patient on its proper use and administration and the requirement of pharmacist counseling is waived. Effective July 1, 2021.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Provides that a facility-provided medication must be ordered at least 24 hours in advance for a surgical procedure and be administered to (rather than only administered to) a patient at the facility for any unused portion of the facility-provided medication to be offered to the patient upon discharge when it is required for continuing treatment.
