§ 5-34-26. Grounds for discipline without a hearing.
The director may temporarily suspend the license of a nurse without a hearing if the director finds that evidence in his or her possession indicates that a nurse's continuation in practice would constitute an immediate danger to the public. In the event that the director temporarily suspends the license of a nurse without a hearing, a hearing by the board must be held within ten (10) days after the suspension has occurred.
