Willful Intent

The Willful Intent Flow Chart is designed to assist facilities in making a determination of whether an incident between Residents is reportable in the Online Tracking incident System, (OTIS), in compliance with 42CFR §483.13(c).

To navigate the flow chart, answer each question and then proceed along the directional arrows, until the final determination is made.

Definitions of each step are found by left-clicking on the blue-colored words, (hyperlinks), on the flow chart. Facilities are encouraged to review all definitions in determining if an incident is reportable.
