Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

20 ILCS 1705/10.1

    (20 ILCS 1705/10.1) (from Ch. 91 1/2, par. 100-10.1)
    Sec. 10.1. Every woman of child-bearing age who is admitted to a facility under the jurisdiction of the Department shall, with her consent or the consent of her guardian, be tested for pregnancy upon admission and thereafter as indicated. For a recipient who is admitted to and remains in a facility for more than 60 days a record of each such recipient's menstrual cycles shall be maintained. A plan for complete prenatal care shall be developed and implemented for each recipient who is found to be pregnant. On-site prenatal care shall be provided to recipients who are not verbal or who otherwise cannot communicate with a provider of care because of a severe disability, in which case the facility administrator shall also seek the consent of the recipient's legal guardian for special care for the recipient, or shall arrange for a temporary or limited guardianship of the person of the recipient for the purpose of obtaining consent to diagnosis and treatment of the recipient. Discharge planning for a pregnant recipient shall specifically include provision for continuity of prenatal care.
