The new/revised language in regulation 12 VAC35-105-170 now states that providers, in their corrective action plans, must detail measures to prevent recurrences of a cited action/inaction. While providers can and must certainly develop and implement plans to reduce the likelihood of a recurrence of any event which resulted in a citation, there are entirely too many variables, including the fact that many providers operate multiple sites, for a provider to attest to being able to prevent a recurrence. The standard is simply unreasonable if not unattainable.
