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.

    Sec. 10.5. Prevention and control of Multidrug-Resistant Organisms. The Department, in consultation with the Department of Public Health, shall adopt rules that may require one or more of the facilities described in Section 4 of this Act to implement comprehensive interventions to prevent and control multidrug-resistant organisms (MDROs), including methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE), and certain gram-negative bacilli (GNB), pursuant to updated prevention and control interventions recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The Department shall also require facilities to submit reports to the Department that contain substantially the same information contained in the related infection reports required to be submitted by hospitals to the Department of Public Health under Section 25 of the Hospital Report Card Act. The Department shall provide that information to the Department of Public Health upon the Department of Public Health's request.
