AS 08.65.120. Disciplinary Sanctions.

(a) When it finds that a person holding a certificate or permit is guilty of an offense under AS 08.65.110 , the board, in addition to the powers provided in AS 08.01.075 , may impose the following sanctions singly or in combination:

(1) permanently revoke a certificate or permit to practice;

(2) suspend a certificate or permit for a determinate period of time;

(3) censure a person holding a certificate or permit;

(4) issue a letter of reprimand;

(5) place a person holding a certificate or permit on probationary status and require the person to

(A) report regularly to the board upon matters involving the basis of probation;

(B) limit practice to those areas prescribed;

(C) continue professional education until a satisfactory degree of skill has been attained in those areas determined by the board to need improvement;

(6) impose limitations or conditions on the practice of a person holding a certificate or permit.

(b) The board may withdraw probationary status if it finds that the deficiencies that required the sanction have been remedied.

(c) The board may summarily suspend a license before final hearing or during the appeals process if the board finds that the licensee poses a clear and immediate danger to the public health and safety if the licensee continues to practice. A person whose license is suspended under this section is entitled to a hearing conducted by the office of administrative hearings (AS 44.64.010 ) not later than seven days after the effective date of the order, and the person may appeal the suspension after a hearing to a court of competent jurisdiction.

(e) The board shall seek consistency in the application of disciplinary sanctions, and significant departure from prior decisions involving similar situations shall be explained in findings of fact or orders.
