             (5)  If the approved provider does not rectify the failure within a reasonable time after the recommendation was given to the approved provider, the Federal Court may, on application by the Secretary or the * Aged Care Commissioner, make such orders as the court considers appropriate for the purpose of ensuring that the recommendation is given effect.
