Discharge Summaries

Hi all,

We have the DNV here right now and they are asking why we only require discharge summaries for stays over 48 hours. I thought it was in Title 22 for State of California and the COP but now I can't find those regulations. We changed from The Joint to DNV about two years ago. I am wondering if this was a JCAHO requirement. Do you know of any requirements for 48 hours?
