Are we required to use the permutation table, or can we choose another method to randomly select our observation day?

All hospitals must use the same process to do the random selection. This will eliminate any bias that might occur if the selection process is not randomized. The permutation table is already in random order and all hospitals should use it. It indicates on which days HOB should be monitored for each month and does not require modification or skipping of any rows.
