SNF QRP: Review and Correct Report and Confidential Feedback Report Issues

CMS has notified us there are two issues with the SNF QRP Review and Correct Reports.

The first issue relates to the SNF QRP Review Reports not updating every Monday, as CMS had initially indicated. When a modification is submitted for an assessment, then the most recent assessment that was accepted in the ASPEN system on or prior to the submission deadline for quarters one and two of CY 2017, is not being used in the measure calculation.

Secondly, an issue has been identified in the coding of one measure contained in both the SNF Quality Measure (QM) and Review Correct Reports which affects the calculation of the measure.

CMS is working to resolve these issues and will send out a notification when the problems are corrected.

If you have any questions, please contact the QIES Help Desk at (405) 271-5278.

For more information on both of these issues, refer to the CMS notification by clicking here: 2017-08-21.SNF+QRP.Review%26CorrectReport%26ConfidentialFeedbackReportIssues.pdf

Bathing Without a Battle

The award-winning, evidence-based Bathing Without a Battle training on person-centered bathing for people with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias is now accessible online free of charge. The interactive training provides 2½ hours of free continuing education credit for nurses and 2 hours of free credit for nursing assistants. Students who plan to enter long-term care or geriatric home care are also encouraged to participate in the online training.

Training can be accessed through the website www.bathingwithoutabattle.unc.edu. Once registered, users can open modules on practical approaches to showering, tub bathing, in-room bathing, and hair washing; information on innovative bathing equipment and supplies; recommendations for policy change within long-term care organizations; and guidance on regulatory compliance.

This new training modality is provided by a grant from the Retirement Research Foundation to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

A condensed training DVD with printable Instructor's Guide continues to be available for purchase for group in-service training or individual study.

Oral Care Project

Multiple studies acknowledge that poor oral hygiene and lack of routine dental care can contribute to respiratory infections and other systemic diseases in high-risk patients living in nursing homes across the country. Improved dental hygiene may be a key in preventing aspiration pneumonia, the leading cause of death in nursing homes, as well as preventing cardiovascular disease, stroke, diabetes and dementia. In addition, a daily dental care regimen can be a cost-saving measure for nursing homes by reducing the expense and time associated with the required care related to the diseases.

Nursing Homes are Invited to Join a Free Community Based Approach to Improving Oral Health
