(d) In the event that any information or data which a residential health care facility has submitted in this report is inaccurate or incorrect, whether by reason of subsequent events or otherwise, such facility shall correct such information or data. Such correction may be made by submitting to the appropriate area office of the New York State Department of Health, Office of Health Systems Management, the accurate information or data on a form which meets the same certification requirements as the report being corrected, or the facility may correct such information or data at the time of the inspection.
