(a) Any person may bring charges of fraud, deceit, negligence, incompetence, or misconduct against a licensee or permit holder. All charges shall be made in writing or by video tape and sworn to by the person making the charges. All charges shall be submitted to the chair of the board within 90 days of the alleged occurrence. After a review of the charges, the board shall conduct a hearing at which it may dismiss the charges, or may impose a fine not to exceed one thousand dollars ($1,000), or may suspend or revoke the license or permit of the person charged.
(b) The licensee or permit holder may appeal a decision of the board imposing an administrative fine or revoking or suspending a license or permit by submitting a request to the board for reconsideration within 90 days following the decision of the board. If no resolution is achieved, further appeals shall be submitted to the circuit court in the jurisdiction of the residence of the licensee or permit holder. Any licensee or permit holder whose application for renewal of licensure or permitting was denied or whose license or permit was revoked may reapply after 12 months. The board may then reissue a license or permit or rescind any disciplinary action if a majority of the members, which shall be no less than four members, vote in favor of the action.
