Grounds for immediate closure.
Any situation that exists at
a Community Living Facility which may result in serious mental, psychological
or physical harm to residents shall be abated or eliminated immediately.
If the Department determines that such a situation exists and that proper
measures to remedy the situation are not being taken, it shall immediately
issue an order of closure and withdraw the residents and, with assistance
from the Department of Human Services, place them in another residential
setting prior to a hearing.
Any such action by the Department shall be included in the evidence presented
at the hearing. At the time of such action the Department shall begin license
revocation proceedings, and the licensee shall retain the right to a hearing as
described in Section 12.
