Sort out decays (4)


I believe the answer is:


'decays' is the definition.
(I know this)

'sort out' is the wordplay.
'out' is an anagram indicator (out can mean wrong or inaccurate).
'sort' with letters rearranged gives 'ROTS'.

(Other definitions for rots that I've seen before include "Decays" , "Decomposes" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
