(1) If the ALJ determines that a preponderance of the evidence in the hearing record supports the substantiated initial finding that the alleged perpetrator abandoned, abused, financially exploited or neglected a vulnerable adult, the ALJ shall uphold the substantiated initial finding.
(2) If the ALJ determines that the substantiated initial finding is not supported by a preponderance of the evidence in the hearing record, the ALJ shall remand the matter to the department to modify the finding consistent with the initial decision of the ALJ.
