Hello PFLC Family and Friends,
Allison Stark, Director, Division of Developmental Disabilities, Illinois Department of Human Services, has collaborated with the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) to issue guidelines regarding support persons in Health Care Facilities (Including Hospitals).
This is a significant step in making sure our loved ones are supported by a guardian, family member, caregiver, or paid support worker if they are transported or admitted from a facility to a health care facility.
Please read the attached letter from Dr. Ngozi O. Ezike, MD, Director, Illinois Department of Public Health.
Stay Safe and Healthy!
