Every individual citation must come into


We get 60 days to revise, re-revise, etc.

Then, whatever is left is cited in a final MDE report.

Report is called a corrective action program or CAP.

We are not released ‘til 100% compliant.


Guidelines (see handout) in mind

Some citations you can correct

Some you can’t

Those may be released

Or, you get a “do-over”


TEAMWORK in mind

We will help each other out

Because it could be “us” next time

And because we can all own the success and celebrate our accomplishments

Besides, it is actually kind of fun

I said “KIND OF”
