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.
