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