Public Health (PBH) CHAPTER 45, ARTICLE 4, TITLE 4
§ 451. Directors of hospitals; removal and suspension. 1. The director
of a hospital in the department may be removed by the commissioner for

visitors of any charges against a director, the commissioner may suspend
such director.

2. The commissioner may prefer charges of misconduct or incompetency
against the director of a hospital in the department, to the board of
visitors, and the board of visitors shall thereupon investigate the

commissioner, or the commissioner or his duly authorized representative
may investigate any charges of like nature made to the commissioner.
The investigating authority may subpoena witnesses, and take and hear
testimony.
