Chapter IV page 23

On this page it discusses the seclusion/restraint reporting requirements.  There is a statement that all serious incidents should be sent to Magellan within 1 business day.

Can the writing be specific that serious incidents involving restraint or seclusion are sent within one business day? 

This will alleviate confusion among providers and prevent Magellan from receiving an overflow of serious incidents not related to restraints.
