I, too, would like to hear what others are doing. We are implementing Document Management and will be using decentralized scanning. I've requested all documents be sent to HIM for the QA process. A few staff in our HIM department are the only ones that can delete scans.
My initial thought is HIM will delete and rescan. HIM would have a process in place that would monitor trends and provide feedback to the departments.

The idea of having all departments responsible for their own scanning is a dream in my opinion. From my experience document management takes a back burner to clinical care in clinical departments. I can see records stacking up (loose sheets) or being placed in drawer (out of sight) and not getting scanned. It will take staff time to keep up with it. I would prefer to allocate that staff time to the HIM department who has a greater interest in record management.

Hi, we do 100% QA of our scanning. Poor images are stamped "poor image". Poor scans are rescanned. All of this happens in the HIM Dept.
