(1)  The agency may deny, revoke, or suspend a license or impose an administrative fine, not to exceed $1,000 per violation per day, for a violation of any provision of s. 393.0655 or s. 393.067 or rules adopted pursuant thereto. All hearings shall be held within the county in which the licensee or applicant operates or applies for a license to operate a facility as defined herein.

(2)  The agency, as a part of any final order issued by it under the provisions of this chapter, may impose such fine as it deems proper, except that such fine may not exceed $1,000 for each violation. Each day a violation of this chapter occurs constitutes a separate violation and is subject to a separate fine, but in no event may the aggregate amount of any fine exceed $10,000. Fines paid by any facility licensee under the provisions of this subsection shall be deposited in the Resident Protection Trust Fund and expended as provided in s. 400.063.

(3)  The agency may issue an order immediately suspending or revoking a license when it determines that any condition in the facility presents a danger to the health, safety, or welfare of the residents in the facility.

(4)  The agency may impose an immediate moratorium on admissions to any facility when the department determines that any condition in the facility presents a threat to the health, safety, or welfare of the residents in the facility.
