Nursing Facilities: Notice on Residents with selected conditions

December 2, 2011

All nursing facilities that receive MaineCare funds must identify residents who are known or suspected of having a “related condition”, such as cerebral palsy. The definition of related condition is included in a new notice from Maine Department of Health and Human Services. The notice also introduces a new Preadmission Screening and Resident Review (PASRR) form.

Questions about the notice and the form can be directed to APS Healthcare or Gary Wolcott, Maine DHHS.
