What are hospitals in Illinois required to report?

Providers must report, within 12 hours but no later than 24 hours of a test result, all preliminary HIV positive pregnant women or HIV-exposed newborns to the 24-hour Illinois Perinatal HIV Hotline (800-439-4079). Hospitals must also report aggregate statistics monthly and inform parents of the importance of treatment to prevent HIV infection of the newborn. Every healthcare facility caring for a newborn whose mother was diagnosed with HIV prior to labor and delivery must report a case of perinatal HIV exposure to the appropriate health department.
