6VAC35-20-91. Corrective action plans and certification audit reports.

A. For each finding of noncompliance, the program or facility administrator shall develop a corrective action plan.

1. The corrective action plan shall be submitted to the department within 30 calendar days of receipt of the written certification audit findings. For good cause, the department may grant a 30-calendar day extension to a program or facility administrator for the development of the corrective action plan.

2. The department shall issue guidelines that provide for (i) the format and (ii) the process for the department's review and approval of corrective action plans.

3. The corrective action plan shall include the following:

a. A description of any extenuating or aggravating factors contributing to the noncompliant circumstances or conditions;

b. A description of each corrective action required or tasks required to correct the deficiency and prevent its recurrence;

c. The actual or proposed date of task completion; and

d. The identification of the person responsible for oversight of each element of the implementation of the corrective action plan.

If the corrective action proposed by the program or facility involves a request for a variance in accordance with 6VAC35-20-92, the corrective action plan must also state what action will be taken to meet or attempt to meet the regulatory requirement should the request for the variance be denied.

4. The program or facility administrator shall be responsible for developing and implementing a written corrective action plan.

5. If a finding of noncompliance results in a request for an appeal of the finding of noncompliance or a variance, documentation of the request for a variance or of the appeal of the finding of noncompliance should be attached to the corrective action plan.

B. Each certification audit report submitted to the director or designee shall contain:

1. The program's or facility's name, administrator, and location;

2. A summary of the program's or facility's population served, programs, and services provided;

3. The date of the certification audit and the names of the audit team leader and members; and

4. Notation of all regulatory requirements for which there was a finding of noncompliance as provided for in 6VAC35-20-85.

If there is a finding of noncompliance with a regulatory requirement, the report shall describe the noncompliance and incorporate the program's or facility's corrective action plan for each area of noncompliance. If a program or facility administrator fails to submit a corrective action plan within the time specified, the certification audit report shall be submitted to the director or designee for consideration.

C. The program or facility administrator shall submit to the audit team leader, upon completion of the corrective action plan, documentation confirming all corrective actions have been fully executed.
