The Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has initiated a number of quality reviews focused on specific high impact areas.  Dementia Care and the MDS have been the subjects for earlier initiated reviews.  Based on the results of an Office of the Inspector General (OIG) report, CMS has now begun a demonstration project on the Adverse Events Focused Audit which has earmarked medications of all types, not just antipsychotics, as the focus of the review.  Learn more information as to the medications to be reviewed and the triggers used in the review.
