The director may temporarily suspend any license or special permit prior to any hearing, when in his or her opinion the action is necessary to protect the public welfare. The director shall notify the licensee or holder of a special permit of the temporary suspension and the effective date thereof and at the same time shall serve the provider with an accusation. Upon receipt of a notice of defense by the licensee or holder of a special permit, the director shall within 15 days set the matter for hearing, which shall be held as soon as possible but not later than 30 days after receipt of the notice. The temporary suspension shall remain in effect until the hearing is completed and the director has made a final determination on the merits. However, the temporary suspension shall be deemed vacated if the director fails to make a final determination on the merits within 60 days after the original hearing has been completed.
If the provisions of this chapter or the rules or regulations promulgated by the director are violated by a licensee or holder of a special permit which is a group, corporation, or other association, the director may suspend the license or special permit of such organization or may suspend the license or special permit as to any individual person within the organization who is responsible for the violation.
