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.

210 ILCS 9/80

    (210 ILCS 9/80)
    Sec. 80. Involuntary termination of residency.
    (a) Residency shall be involuntarily terminated only for the following reasons:
        (1) as provided in Section 75 of this Act;
        (2) nonpayment of contracted charges after the
resident and the resident's representative have received a minimum of 30-days written notice of the delinquency and the resident or the resident's representative has had at least 15 days to cure the delinquency; or
        (3) failure to execute a service delivery contract or
to substantially comply with its terms and conditions, failure to comply with the assessment requirements contained in Section 15, or failure to substantially comply with the terms and conditions of the lease agreement.
    (b) A 30 day written notice of residency termination shall be provided to the resident, the resident's representative, or both, and the long term care ombudsman, which shall include the reason for the pending action, the date of the proposed move, and a notice, the content and form to be set forth by rule, of the resident's right to appeal, the steps that the resident or the resident's representative must take to initiate an appeal, and a statement of the resident's right to continue to reside in the establishment until a decision is rendered. The notice shall include a toll free telephone number to initiate an appeal and a written hearing request form, together with a postage paid, pre-addressed envelope to the Department. If the resident or the resident's representative, if any, cannot read English, the notice must be provided in a language the individual receiving the notice can read or the establishment must provide a translator who has been trained to assist the resident or the resident's representative in the appeal process. In emergency situations as defined in Section 10 of this Act, the 30-day provision of the written notice may be waived.
    (c) The establishment shall attempt to resolve with the resident or the resident's representative, if any, circumstances that if not remedied have the potential of resulting in an involuntary termination of residency and shall document those efforts in the resident's file. This action may occur prior to or during the 30 day notice period, but must occur prior to the termination of the residency. In emergency situations as defined in Section 10 of this Act, the requirements of this subsection may be waived.
    (d) A request for a hearing shall stay an involuntary termination of residency until a decision has been rendered by the Department, according to a process adopted by rule. During this time period, the establishment may not terminate or reduce any service for the purpose of making it more difficult or impossible for the resident to remain in the establishment.
    (e) The establishment shall offer the resident and the resident's representative, if any, residency termination and relocation assistance including information on available alternative placement. Residents shall be involved in planning the move and shall choose among the available alternative placements except when an emergency situation makes prior resident involvement impossible. Emergency placements are deemed temporary until the resident's input can be sought in the final placement decision. No resident shall be forced to remain in a temporary or permanent placement.
    (f) The Department may offer assistance to the establishment and the resident in the preparation of residency termination and relocation plans to assure safe and orderly transition and to protect the resident's health, safety, welfare, and rights. In nonemergencies, and where possible in emergencies, the transition plan shall be designed and implemented in advance of transfer or residency termination.
