129.1. The director of professional services, the chairman of the council of physicians, dentists and pharmacists, the head of a clinical department or, in the case of a pharmacist, the head of the pharmacy department may, in case of emergency, temporarily authorize a physician, dentist or a pharmacist to practise his profession in a hospital centre. In that case, the person who gives the authorization must so notify the executive director immediately.
Where there is a risk that the period involved in obtaining the authorization could be prejudicial to a beneficiary, any physician, dentist or pharmacist may, without such authorization, give the treatment or services that the condition of the beneficiary requires.
