Information for Nursing Facilities

Linked below is a folder that has a copy of the tools that CMS has developed for the Dementia Focused Survey and for the Adverse Drug Event Survey. The department will not be conducting these surveys this federal fiscal year, but they are good tools that should help you in evaluating your programs. There is information in these tools that surveyors do use in looking at these areas during a regular QIS survey.

I have also included the Worksheet #1 for the MDS surveys. In talking with some providers I have promised to provide this worksheet. This is the only worksheet used in these surveys that we can release to providers.
