Element 2 - Identify Others Who May Be Affected
Element 2 states: "How the facility will identify other individuals who have the potential to be affected by the same deficient practice and how the facility will act to protect individuals in similar situations."
Facilities should state how all other individuals who have been, or could be, affected by the deficient practice have been identified in their PoCs (who else may be affected?).
To meet Element 2, the facility must address:
- how it evaluated or will evaluate other individuals who may be affected by the deficient practice; and
- what actions it has taken or will take to protect individuals identified by the facility from the same threat.
