b) Each report of correction shall be based on an assessment by the facility of the conditions or occurrences which are the basis of the violation and an evaluation of the practices, policies, and procedures which have caused or contributed to the conditions or occurrences. Evidence of such assessment and evaluation shall be maintained by the facility. Each report of correction shall include:
1) A description of the specific corrective action the facility has taken to abate, eliminate, or correct the violation cited in the notice.

If a report of correction is disapproved, the facility shall be subject to a plan of correction imposed by the Department as provided in Section 300.278.
