The Functional Abilities and Goals, How Can They Affect the SNF QRPs
The Functional Abilities and Goals section of the MDS is CMS’ first continuity of care section of the MDS. This section is seen on the MDS as well as other post-acute care providers reporting tools. Learn how the information placed in this section can be used to develop a baseline care plan and focus on resident improvement and how that improvement affects your community’s Skilled Nursing facility Quality Reporting Program measures.
What are the goals of the presentation?
- 1. Show how skilled nursing facility staff should use the functional abilities and goals section of the MDS to develop a baseline care plan
- 2. Ensure that these goals are reviewed with the resident/resident representative on an ongoing basis
- 3. Evaluate the effectiveness of these goals to reviewing the SNF QRPs on either the Care Compare website or on the CASPER system
