Rule 350-3-.09. Administrative Hearing

(1) Should the facility wish to appeal the Administrative Review decision for remedies described in Subsections .02(a),(b),(c),(g),and(h), and for Subsection (d) where no determination of immediate jeopardy has been made, it may request an administrative hearing. Subsequent correction of a deficiency or deficiencies shall not constitute a defense to the imposition of a remedy or remedies. The hearing request shall state specifically which portion(s) of the Administrative Review decision the facility contests. A hearing shall be granted only if Administrative Review was timely requested, and a written request for a hearing has been received by the State Survey Agency within ten (10) business days of the facility's receipt of the Administrative Review decision. Failure to file a timely request shall result in the Administrative Review decision becoming final, and no further administrative or judicial review or hearing shall be available.
(2) If the Department has imposed temporary management pursuant to the provisions of Subsection .05(c), or imposed either of the remedies specified in Subsection .02(e), the facility shall be entitled to a hearing which shall commence not less than five (5) nor more than ten (10) days after the facility's receipt of notice of imposition of said remedy or remedies. No Administrative Review shall be conducted in such cases and no request for hearing shall be required. The date, time, and location of the hearing shall be included in the Notice of imposition of the remedy or remedies. A facility may waive its right to a hearing by written notice to the State Survey Agency.
(3) Except for appointment of a temporary manager (unless the Department has determined that immediate jeopardy to the health or safety of a facility's residents exists), termination of a facility's participation, closure of a facility, or payment of civil monetary penalties, the imposition of remedies shall not be stayed during the pendency of any hearing.
