§9-6-6. Payment and termination of payment for services to a vulnerable adult.

If any vulnerable adult requires and is granted remedial treatment for an emergency, or the department determines that a vulnerable adult is abused, neglected, or financially exploited, the department may pay any assistance granted for the use and benefit of such vulnerable adult to the person actually providing care for such adult, and terminate payments to any person alleged or shown to have abused, neglected, or financially exploited such vulnerable adult, or to whom such payments were made prior to such remedial treatment, for so long as such remedial treatment continues, or until such abuse, neglect, or financial exploitation is abated, and such vulnerable adult continues to be in the immediate care, custody, and control of such person.
