Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Nursing Home Care Act. Prohibits a person from establishing, operating, maintaining, offering, or advertising a facility within this State without providing to the Department of Public Health proof of liability insurance coverage in an amount not less than $1,000,000 per occurrence. Defines "liability insurance". Authorizes the Department to suspend, revoke, or refuse to issue or renew a license if the facility fails to have or maintain liability insurance coverage. Provides that the failure to maintain liability insurance coverage during the term of a facility's license shall be a separate "Type B" violation for each resident of the facility for each month, or part of a month, in which the facility did not have the minimum required liability insurance. Provides that a licensee shall pay 3 times the actual damages (instead of paying the actual damages), and costs and attorney's fees, to a facility resident whose rights, as specified in certain provisions of the Act, are violated.
