12 Va. Admin. Code § 5-391-140 - Revocation or suspension of a license

Current through Register Vol.. 38, No. 17, April 11, 2022

A. The commissioner is authorized to revoke or suspend any license if the licensee fails to comply with the provisions of Article 7 (§ 32.1-162.1 et seq.) of Chapter 5 of Title 32.1 of the Code of Virginia or the regulations of the board.

Providers operating a dedicated hospice facility shall also maintain compliance with the applicable licensure regulations as described in 12VAC5-391-120. Failure to maintain compliance may be taken into consideration when the commissioner decides to revoke or suspend a hospice program license.

B. If a license is revoked, the commissioner may issue a new license when the conditions upon which revocation was based have been corrected and compliance with all provisions of the law and this chapter has been achieved.
C. Suspension of a license shall in all cases be for an indefinite time. The suspension may be lifted and rights under the license fully or partially restored at such time as the commissioner determines that the interests of the public will not be jeopardized by resumption of services.
D. When a license is revoked or suspended, the hospice program shall cease operations. If the hospice program continues operating, the commissioner may request the Office of the Attorney General to petition the circuit court of the jurisdiction in which the hospice program is located for an injunction to cause such hospice program to cease operations.
