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.

    (a) A hospital shall provide, free of charge, information and instructional materials regarding sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), explaining the medical effects upon infants and young children and emphasizing measures that may reduce the risk. The materials shall include information concerning safe sleep environments developed by the American Academy of Pediatrics or a statewide or nationally recognized SIDS or medical association.
    (b) The information and materials described in subsection (a) shall be provided to parents or legal guardians of each newborn, upon discharge from the hospital.

    (c) Nothing in this Section prohibits a hospital from obtaining free and suitable information from a public or private agency.
