The Psychosocial Severity Outcomes Guide was implemented in 2006, by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Not much has been said about this guide until the implementation of the new CMS Requirements of Participation (RoP). In fact, numerous professionals are not even aware of this specific guidance. Surveyors have now been instructed to refer to this document when assessing issues regarding dignity, neglect, quality of life, medication regimen review, unnecessary drugs/antipsychotic usage, as well as a resident’s ability to “attain or maintain their highest practicable" level of care. CMS lists at least 6 major negative outcomes that surveyors are to give focus to during the survey process. In this one-hour webinar, Cat will provide an overview of surveyor protocol, facility practice, and their links to psychosocial harm. She will also be providing tips and recommendations as to programming, documentation, and systemic process that should be in place to help a resident maintain or attain their highest practicable level of psychosocial well-being.
