Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Administration of Psychotropic Medications to Children Act. Requires the Department of Children and Family Services to maintain a record of certain information for every youth in care prescribed or provided psychotropic medication, including, but not limited to: (1) a list of the prescribed psychotropic medications; (2) the consent date for each prescribed psychotropic medication; and (3) the date the youth assented for each prescribed psychotropic medication. Requires the Department to collect all necessary information to complete its required annual report to the General Assembly and to use the information to analyze prescribing patterns by population for youth for whom the Department is legally responsible (DCFS youth). Requires the Department to ensure that on an annual basis all persons licensed to practice medicine who prescribe psychotropic medication to DCFS youth are provided with comprehensive up-to-date medical guidelines regarding the prescribing of such medications. Requires the Department to include in its annual report to the General Assembly information on the total number of requests the Department received requesting consent to provide psychotropic medication to DCFS youth and the total number of these requests that the Department denied; and other specified data. Requires the Department to post the annual report on its website. Provides that the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation may take certain disciplinary or non-disciplinary actions against any person issued a license or permit under the Act who commits repeated acts of clearly excessive prescribing, furnishing, or administering psychotropic medications to a minor without a good faith prior examination of the patient and medical reason.
