Guaranteeing/ preventing an issue will not reoccur is excessive and unwarranted
The requirement for providers to identify measures that prevent a recurrence of certain outcomes (resulting in citations) is excessive. Providers do (and should) take measures to reduce the probability of a similar event happening again; however, it is impossible for a provider to confirm/ ensure that it won't. This standard is setting providers up for failure (and to receive repeated citations despite what corrective action or positive changes they implement).
