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.

210 ILCS 30/14

    (210 ILCS 30/14) (from Ch. 111 1/2, par. 4174)
    Sec. 14. There shall be a central register of all cases of suspected long term care facility resident abuse or neglect reported and maintained by the Department under this Act. Through the recording of initial, preliminary, progress, and final reports, the central register shall be operated in such a manner as to enable the Department to: (1) immediately identify and locate prior reports or cases of abuse or neglect; (2) continuously monitor the current status of all cases of abuse or neglect being provided services under this Act; and (3) regularly evaluate the effectiveness of existing laws and programs through the development and analysis of statistical and other information. The Department shall by rule adopt appropriate standards and procedures for the operation of the central register, including criteria to be used by long term care facility employees in determining whether abuse or neglect of a resident is suspected, and standards and procedures for making reports. The Department shall also take appropriate steps to ensure that all persons required to make reports under Section 4 are aware of those criteria, standards and procedures. The Department shall establish, in conjunction with the Department of Human Services, standards for evaluating reports of suspected abuse or neglect of recipients of mental health or developmental disability services to determine if a recipient's life or safety is in imminent danger, and for classifying other reports of suspected abuse and neglect for purposes of determining the necessity and schedule of an investigation.
