Letter of Admonition: A public reprimand issued to a licensee or registrant in the form of an actual letter or as part of a Stipulation. The letter or Stipulation is a public record and may be obtained from the Program office.
Stipulation and Final Agency Order: An order of the Program and an agreement between the Program (Division Director) and a licensee or registrant prior to a formal hearing. A stipulation resolves the case. In a stipulation, both parties agree to facts, sanctions and the terms and conditions for continued practice, if applicable.
Final Agency Order: Final order issued by the Program after a formal hearing before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) where evidence and testimony were presented. The ALJ prepares a written report of the findings which the Program (Division Director) reviews and then makes the final ruling regarding the appropriate sanction.
Summary Suspension, is an immediate, temporary withdrawal of a license or registration to practice pending prompt commencement of formal disciplinary proceedings. This type of suspension can be ordered when the Program (Division Director) finds the public health, safety or welfare requires emergency action or that the practitioner has willfully violated the law, or when a registration or license is suspended for failure to comply with a lawful order of the Program (Division Director).
Cease and Desist Order: is an order issued to an individual or business which has engaged in unlicensed or unregistered practice.
