    Sec. 1. Short title. This Act may be cited as the Poison Control System Act.
(Source: P.A. 87‑1145.)

    (410 ILCS 47/5)
    Sec. 5. Declaration of purpose. The General Assembly finds and declares that it is in the public interest to reduce the incidence, severity, and expenditures associated with the accidental, intentional, and environmental poisoning of children, adults, and animals; to educate the public and health professionals concerning the prevention and treatment of hazardous exposures; and to ensure that adequate poison control services are available on a statewide basis. The General Assembly believes that the people of the State of Illinois will benefit from the provision of poison control activities because these activities will reduce the number of accidental poisonings, provide immediate medical information, and lower health care costs. In addition, poison control activities will reduce the number of deaths, reduce emotional stress, promote faster recovery, and provide more cost effective treatment for poisoning exposures. The General Assembly also finds that a statewide poison control system covering human and animal exposures can utilize animal exposures as monitors of environmental quality and human risk, provide for a complete epidemiological surveillance of poisoning, reduce the economic impact from livestock loss due to poisoning and help maintain a safe food supply, and avoid duplication of services and waste. A statewide system will also increase preparedness for toxicological disasters and provide antidote depots. It is the purpose of this Act to establish a comprehensive, statewide regional poison control system so that any person may obtain expert hazard, toxicology, and treatment information on a 24 hours basis.

    Sec. 10. Definitions. As used in this Act:
    "Human poison control center" means an emergency public health service providing toxicity, hazard, and treatment information, case documentation, and follow‑up calls. A human poison control center is staffed, in part, by professionals dedicated solely to the operation of the center while staffing the center, provides a 24 hour a day toll‑free telephone access, and provides the public and health professionals with educational programs on poison prevention and treatment.
    "Animal poison control center" means an emergency animal oriented service providing toxicity, hazard, and treatment information, case documentation, and follow‑up calls. An animal poison control center is staffed with veterinarians dedicated solely to the operation of the center on a 24 hour a day basis with toll‑free telephone access, and provides the public and health professionals with educational programs on poison prevention and treatment.
    "Regional poison control center" means a human poison control center designated by the Illinois Department of Public Health, or an animal poison control center designated by the Illinois Department of Agriculture under Section 15.

    (410 ILCS 47/13)
    Sec. 13. Funding; study. To ensure the stability of funding for the Illinois Poison Control System, the Department of Public Health and the Illinois Poison Advisory Board shall conduct a study to determine the feasibility of establishing a formula that sets State goals for funding the System. As part of the study, the Department of Public Health and the Illinois Poison Advisory Board shall consider the adoption of a formula of funding for the Illinois Poison Control System that establishes a minimum threshold of funding set on a per capita basis. Also, as part of the study, the Department of Public Health and the Illinois Poison Advisory Board shall consider the feasibility of implementing a separate source of funding for the Illinois Poison Control System separate from the General Revenue Fund. The Department of Public Health and the Illinois Poison Advisory Board shall complete the study by December 31, 2005 and shall present their findings to the Illinois General Assembly for its consideration.

    (410 ILCS 47/15)
    Sec. 15. Regional center designation. By January 1, 1993, the Director of the Illinois Department of Public Health shall designate at least 2 and no more than 3 human poison control centers. The director of the Illinois Department of Agriculture shall designate 1 animal poison control center as regional poison control center to provide comprehensive poison control center services for animal exposures by January 1, 1993. The services provided by the centers shall adhere to the appropriate national standards promulgated by the American Association of Poison Control Centers and the Illinois State Veterinary Medical Association; adherence to these standards shall occur within 2 years after designation by the respective departments, unless the center has been granted an extension by the Illinois Department of Public Health or the Illinois Department of Agriculture. The 2‑year period shall automatically be extended for an additional 2 years if funding was not secured after a poison control center's initial designation. The designated departments shall set standards of operation after consulting with current poison control service providers. Poison control centers shall cooperate to reduce the cost of operations, collect information on poisoning exposures, and provide education to the public and health professionals. A regional poison control center shall continue to operate unless it voluntarily closes or the designating departments revoke the designation for failure to comply with the standards. Centers designated under this Act shall be considered State agencies for purposes of the State Employee Indemnification Act.
