There is no specific investigative protocol for the care of a resident with dementia. Surveyors may use the checklist titled, "Review of Care & Services for a Resident with Dementia" to assist in investigating the care and services provided to a resident with a diagnosis of dementia. This checklist includes items such as assessment, root-cause analysis, individualized interventions, use of antipsychotic medications, activities, psychosocial well-being, care planning, etc. The list goes on and on... resulting in over twenty pages of CMS revisions to surveyors for ftag 309 - Quality of Care. During this session, Cat will review the checklist and break down the guidance into understandable, common sense language that everyone can comprehend. Cat will be covering actual case studies and examples of deficient practice that have been provided to surveyors. (Included in the State Operations Manual - SOM). Determination of compliance and immediate jeopardy issues will be addressed. The instruction will also focus on the surveyor's evaluation of a facility's systemic approaches to deliver care and services for a resident with dementia. Quality Assessment & Assurance (QAA) in this area will be investigated thoroughly by surveyors.
