During an inspection, when serious noncompliances are found, it is important to record any information relating to these noncompliances in the REMARKS sections in the inspection software. Since no narrative report is produced as the result of the inspection, the only method to record information of this type is in the REMARKS sections. Normally, it will not be necessary to record additional information, such as when testing data leads to level 1 noncompliances. However, there may be additional supporting information that should be recorded when these other types of noncompliances are found, such as those relating to the medical audit, personnel, mammography reports, QC records, etc.
In the event that this additional information cannot be accommodated in the REMARKS sections, send an MPRIS electronic mail message with your inspection report. This electronic mail message should include the inspection ID number, the facility name, and a complete description of the issues. In the inspection software REMARKS section, you should state "ADDITIONAL INFO SENT BY E-MAIL."
