Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Hospital Licensing Act. Requires hospitals to adopt, implement, periodically update, and submit to the Department of Public Health evidence-based protocols for the early recognition and treatment of patients with sepsis, severe sepsis, or septic shock that are based on generally accepted standards of care. Requires the protocols to contain certain components, including components specific to the identification, care, and treatment of adults and of children. Requires hospitals to submit the protocols to the Department no later than 6 months after the effective date of the amendatory Act. Provides that protocols shall be resubmitted at the request of the Department, but not more frequently than once every 2 years unless the Department identifies hospital-specific performance concerns. Requires hospitals to report certain sepsis-related data to the Department. Amends the Department of Public Health Powers and Duties Law of the Civil Administrative Code of Illinois. Requires the Department to publish guidelines to assist hospitals in developing the sepsis protocols. Contains provisions concerning rulemaking.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the bill as introduced, with the following changes: Removes provisions defining terms. Makes changes in provisions concerning requirements for sepsis protocols and the reporting of sepsis protocols. Requires hospitals to provide sepsis protocols to the Department of Public Health upon request. Requires hospitals to collect certain sepsis-related data (rather than report it to the Department). Provides that hospitals submitting data as required by a specified federal program as of fiscal year 2016 are presumed to meet specified sepsis protocol requirements. Adds provisions concerning requirements for appropriations and rulemaking power for the Department in the event of such appropriations. Provides that any publicly released hospital-specific information under these provisions is subject to specified provisions of the Hospital Report Card Act. Makes other changes. In the Department of Public Health Powers and Duties Law of the Civil Administrative Code of Illinois, requires the Department to adopt rules implementing sepsis screening protocols (rather than requiring the Department to publish specified guidelines and adopt such rules). Effective immediately.
