    (Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2023)
    Sec. 70. Immediate suspension of license or registration; hearing. The Director may, upon receipt of a written communication from the Secretary of Human Services or the Director of Public Health that continuation of practice of a person licensed or registered under this Act constitutes an immediate danger to the public, immediately suspend the license or registration of that person without a hearing. In instances in which the Director immediately suspends a license or registration under this Section, a hearing upon the person's license must be convened by the Board within 15 days after the suspension and completed without appreciable delay. The hearing shall be held to determine whether to recommend to the Director that the person's license be revoked, suspended, placed on probationary status, or reinstated, or that the person be subject to other disciplinary action. In the hearing, the written communication and any other evidence submitted with the communication may be introduced as evidence against the person. The person or his or her counsel shall have the opportunity to discredit or impeach such evidence and submit rebuttal evidence.
