October HP LTC (Indiana) Monthly Summary Released - Is Your NF Prepared?

IHCP (Indiana Health Coverage Programs) has just released the October statistics for HP LTC Case Mix audits.  Each monthly summary can be found on their website here.  Several items should be of interest to Social Service staff - 

  • One of the expanded audits was due in part to PASRR
  • For October, the Behavior category was only fully supported at a rate of 50%
  • For October, Impaired Cognition was only fully supported at a rate of 87%
  • 13 residents were referred for Level IIs

Although the BIMS is considered a source document, there must be evidence that the interview was completed during the assessment period.  Residents who do not participate in the BIMS interview must have specific documentation during the time frame to validate their cognition.  There also must be documentation within the assessment period of any behavioral symptoms with specific examples.  

Does your Social Service staff keep a current PASRR list?  Have you reviewed those residents' Level II recommendations to ensure the recommendations have been implemented?  Has Social Service made Level II referrals for residents with significant changes as appropriate?  Need assistance with preparation?  Contact SHC and we'll schedule a visit to help your facility continue improving Quality of Life services to your residents.
