    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because DDA/IMEU mandates a comprehensive investigation for all Serious Reportable Incidents (SRI).

    All reportable incidents must be investigated internally by the provider within 5 business days.

Therefore, the statement is false.
