    (210 ILCS 45/3-421)  (from Ch. 111 1/2, par. 4153-421)
    Sec. 3-421. In any transfer or discharge conducted under
subsection (e) of Section 3-415, the Department shall notify
the facility and any resident to be removed that an emergency
has been found to exist and removal has been ordered, and shall
involve the residents in removal planning if possible. With the
consent of the resident or his or her representative, the
facility must inform the resident's designated case
coordination unit, as defined in 89 Ill. Adm. Code 240.260, of
the resident's pending discharge and must provide the resident
or his or her representative with the case coordination unit's
telephone number and other contact information. Following
emergency removal, the Department shall provide written notice
to the facility, to the resident, to the resident's
representative, if any, and to a member of the resident's
family, where practicable, of the basis for the finding that an
emergency existed and of the right to challenge removal under
Section 3-422.
