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. 4-108.5. Provisional licensure period; surveys. During the provisional licensure period, the Department shall conduct surveys to determine compliance with timetables and benchmarks with a facility's provisional licensure application plan of operation. Timetables and benchmarks shall be established in rule and shall include, but not be limited to, the following: (1) training of new and existing staff; (2) establishment of a data collection and reporting program for the facility's Quality Assessment and Performance Improvement Program; and (3) compliance with building environment standards beyond compliance with Chapter 33 of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 101 Life Safety Code. Waivers granted by the Department in accordance with Section 4-104.5 of this Act shall be considered by the Department in its determination of the facility's compliance with the Life Safety Code.
    During the provisional licensure period, the Department shall conduct State licensure surveys as well as a conformance standard review to determine compliance with timetables and benchmarks associated with the accreditation process. Timetables and benchmarks shall be met in accordance with the preferred accrediting organization conformance standards and recommendations and shall include, but not be limited to, conducting a comprehensive facility self-evaluation in accordance with an established national accreditation program. The facility shall submit all data reporting and outcomes required by accrediting organization to the Department of Public Health for review to determine progress towards accreditation. Accreditation status shall supplement but not replace the State's licensure surveys of facilities licensed under this Act and their certified programs and services to determine the extent to which these facilities provide high quality interventions, especially evidence-based practices, appropriate to the assessed clinical needs of individuals in the 4 certified levels of care.
    Except for incidents involving the potential for harm, serious harm, death, or substantial facility failure to address a serious systemic issue within 60 days, findings of the facility's root cause analysis of problems and the facility's Quality Assessment and Performance Improvement program in accordance with item (22) of Section 4-104 shall not be used as a basis for non-compliance.
    The Department shall have the authority to hire licensed practitioners of the healing arts and qualified mental health professionals to consult with and participate in survey and inspection activities.
