DRAFT Guidance on Incident Reporting Requirements (12VAC35-105-160 & 12VAC35-46-1070.C.)
 

An appeal process needs to be included. If a provider receives a 4th citation in which their license is in jeopardy, this should be an appealable issue. The case should be reviewed by a neutral party ( arbitrator, hearing officer or mediator) Providers should be permitted to request a formal change to an official decision; as appeals function both as a process for error correction as well as a process of clarifying and interpreting the law.
