Rule Rule 411-089-0020
Sanctions, Generally


Information collected during a visit by any Department, local APD, or Area Agency on Aging representative, regardless of the reason for the visit, may be used as a basis for any sanction imposed by the Department.


The use of any one sanction by the Department does not preclude the implementation of any other sanctions for the same deficiencies.


The Department may seek appropriate administrative or injunctive relief before the completion of an investigation or inspection if it appears a resident might otherwise be deprived of rights secured by federal or state law.


If after an investigation or inspection the Department believes there is substantial evidence a violation has occurred or is occurring, the Department may seek, by administrative or judicial means, to obtain such remedial relief as may be appropriate, including voluntary compliance, contested case, and injunction proceedings.
