A P50 can be ‘‘delisted’’ by the Secretary if it is found to no longer meet the requirements of the Patient Safety Act and Patient Safety Rule, including when a PSO chooses to voluntarily relinquish its status as a PSO for any reason. DATES: The directories for both listed and delisted PSOs are ongoing and reviewed weekly by AHRQ. The SUMMARY delisting was effective at 12 Midnight ET (2400) on January 20, 2011.
