Section 822

If a licensing agency determines that its licentiates ability to practice his or her profession safely is impaired because the licentiate is mentally ill, or physically ill affecting competency, the licensing agency may take action by any one of the following methods:


Revoking the licentiates certificate or license.


Suspending the licentiates right to practice.


Placing the licentiate on probation.


Taking such other action in relation to the licentiate as the licensing agency in its discretion deems proper.
The licensing agency shall not reinstate a revoked or suspended certificate or license until it has received competent evidence of the absence or control of the condition which caused its action and until it is satisfied that with due regard for the public health and safety the persons right to practice his or her profession may be safely reinstated.
