Eleven Illinois Health Care Workers Lose Licenses

CHICAGO (KMOX) – Eleven health care workers in Illinois lost their licenses today because they are convicted sex offenders.

Under a new law the Illinois Department of financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) is required to revoke the licenses of anyone who is convicted of a sex crime or other violent crimes against their patients.

The licenses are permanently revoked without a hearing.

The law signed last month by Governor Quinn also stipulates that sex offenders cannot be licensed as health care workers cannot be licensed as health care workers.
