The process of licensing citations and creation of corrective action plans already provide agencies with a vehicle to put in place safeguards against re-occurrence of licensing violations.  The reality is, however, that there is no way to completely ensure or prevent a re-occurrence of a violation.  Putting in place punitive measures in instances of re-occurrence of violations only threatens to harm good agencies who due to a variety of factors outside of their control may experience repeat violations.
