39-928. Issuance of license, when; inspections and investigations; reports; time license effective; nontransferable; display; contents of license.
Upon receipt of an application for license, the licensing agency with the approval of the state fire marshal shall issue a license if the applicant is fit and qualified and if the adult care home facilities meet the requirements established under this law. The licensing agency, the state fire marshal, and the county, city-county or multicounty health departments or their designated representatives shall make such inspections and investigations as are necessary to determine the conditions existing in each case and a written report of such inspections and investigations and the recommendations of the state fire marshal and the county, city-county or multicounty health department or their authorized agents shall be filed with the licensing agency. The licensing agency and the state fire marshal may designate and use county, city-county or multicounty health departments and local fire and safety authorities as their agents in making such inspections and investigations as are deemed necessary or advisable. Such local authorities are hereby authorized, empowered and directed to perform such duties as are designated. A copy of any inspection reports required by this section shall be furnished to the applicant.
A license, unless sooner suspended or revoked, shall remain in effect upon filing by the licensee, and approval by the licensing agency and the state fire marshal or their duly authorized agents, of an annual report upon such uniform dates and containing such information in such form as the licensing agency prescribes and payment of an annual fee. Each
license shall be issued only for the premises and persons named in the application and shall not be transferable or assignable. It shall be posted in a conspicuous place in the adult care home. If the annual report is not so filed and annual fee is not paid, such license is automatically canceled. Any license granted under the provisions of this act shall state the type of facility for which license is granted, number of residents for which granted, the person or persons to whom granted, the date and such additional information and special limitations as are deemed advisable by the licensing agency.
