Missed Shifts

It is greatly appreciated that missed shifts will now be able to be made up within 72 hours after the shift is missed in 1720, B 1, C.  However, paragraphs C, (5) places significant restrictions on making up the shifts by requiring that the shifts be made up within a Sunday to Saturday week.  Not sure why this restriction was added but suggest removing it.  Also paragraphs C (5) and C (6) bothstill state maximum of 16 hours per day.  However, for those patients with 16 hours per day making up a shift will lead to more than 16 hours in a day when a shift is made up.  Recommend clarifying that the 16 hour limit may be exceeeded when a shift is made up.
