§ 44-104.04. Emergency suspension.
(a) The Mayor may immediately suspend, as an emergency action, a license on finding that
the licensee’s premises are unsafe for human habitation or pose an immediate threat to the
health and safety of its residents.
(b) The Mayor shall deliver a written notice to the licensee informing it of the emergency
suspension, giving the reasons for the suspension, providing the provisions of law with which
the licensee has failed to comply that form the basis for the emergency suspension, and
notifying the ALR of its right to request a hearing and to be represented by counsel.
(c) The filing of a hearing request shall not stay the emergency suspension. If the licensee is
dissatisfied with the emergency suspension, it may appeal the suspension as provided in § 44-
(d) When a license is suspended pursuant to this section, the licensee shall immediately return
the license to the Mayor, notify the residents and surrogates of the suspension, and make
every effort to assist them in making other assisted living arrangements.
