10A NCAC 48B .0103: ACCREDITATION REQUIREMENTS

The proposed change to the current rule is anticipated to "reduce the burden upon those persons or entities who must comply with the rule" (G.S. 150B-19.1 Requirements for agencies in the rule-making process).  Under current rule, in order to designate a benchmark as "Met," the agency must carry out ALL of the activities prescribed for a given benchmark, which can include up to 10 activities.  Failure to complete any ONE activity associated with the benchmark means that benchmark is "Not Met."  This method of scoring has caused several health departments to not meet the minimal accreditation requirements with only two "Not Met" activities.

A public hearing was held on October 02, 2012 at 10 a.m. in the Cardinal Room, located at 5605 Six Forks Road, Raleigh, NC 27609 External link.
