      Sec. 19a-523. (Formerly Sec. 19-606). Injunction for violation. (a) If, from the results of an inspection and investigation in accordance with section 19a-498, or upon receipt of a report or complaint from the Commissioner of Social Services, pursuant to section 17b-408, and upon such review and further investigation, as the Commissioner of Public Health deems necessary, the Commissioner of Public Health determines that such nursing home facility has violated any provision of the Public Health Code relating to the operation or maintenance of a nursing home facility, the Commissioner of Public Health may, notwithstanding the provisions of chapter 54, request the Attorney General to seek a temporary or permanent injunction and such other relief as may be appropriate to enjoin such nursing home facility from continuing such violation or violations. If the court determines such violation or violations exist, it may grant such injunctive relief and such other relief as justice may require and may set a time period within which such nursing home facility shall comply with any such order.

      (b) Any appeal taken from any permanent injunction granted under subsection (a) of this section shall not stay the operation of such injunction unless the court is of the opinion that great and irreparable injury will be done by not staying the operation of such injunction.
