Case Number: 
2017 IL App (2d) 160327
Decision Date: 
September 28, 2017
District: 
2d Dist.
Division/County: 
Kane Co.
Justice: 
HUTCHINSON
Holding: 
Reversed.

Court erred in granting State's petition for involuntary administration of psychotropic medication. The general information that Respondent received about the types of treatments and activities available at Elgin Mental Health Center was insufficient to satisfy the mandate of Section 2-102(a-5) of Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities Code. Court erred in ruling that Respondent was exhibiting deterioration of her ability to function or suffering. (ZENOFF and BIRKETT, concurring.)
