400.994  Injunctions.--

(1)  The agency may institute injunctive proceedings in a court of competent jurisdiction in order to:

(a)  Enforce the provisions of this part or any minimum standard, rule, or order issued or entered into pursuant to this part if the attempt by the agency to correct a violation through administrative fines has failed; if the violation materially affects the health, safety, or welfare of clinic patients; or if the violation involves any operation of an unlicensed clinic.

(b)  Terminate the operation of a clinic if a violation of any provision of this part, or any rule adopted pursuant to this part, materially affects the health, safety, or welfare of clinic patients.

(2)  Such injunctive relief may be temporary or permanent.

(3)  If action is necessary to protect clinic patients from life-threatening situations, the court may allow a temporary injunction without bond upon proper proof being made. If it appears by competent evidence or a sworn, substantiated affidavit that a temporary injunction should issue, the court, pending the determination on final hearing, shall enjoin operation of the clinic.
