A licensed clinic shall allow full and complete access to the premises and to billing records or information to any representative of the agency who makes an inspection to determine compliance with this part and with applicable rules.
(3) Failure by a clinic licensed under this part to allow full and complete access to the premises and to billing records or information to any representative of the agency who makes a request to inspect the clinic to determine compliance with this part or failure by a clinic to employ a qualified medical director or clinic director constitutes a ground for emergency suspension of the license by the agency pursuant to s. 120.60(6).
