Element 5 - Date of Completion
Element 5 states: "When corrective action must be accomplished."
The PoC must identify the date of completion or the expected date of completion for each deficiency.
Providers should consider the significance and seriousness of each deficient practice.
- The amount of time for correction should vary, depending upon the nature of the deficiency.
- Many deficiencies, especially those involving health and safety or active treatment, can and must be corrected within shorter time frames.
