Beginning August 25, 2022, users will see two new Preadmission Screening and Resident Review (PASRR) alerts on the Long-Term Care (LTC) Online Portal.
NF Resident Age Alert
When the LTC Online Portal discovers that a nursing facility (NF) resident has turned 21 years of age, the following new alert will be sent to the local authorities (LAs) documented on the PASRR Level 1 (PL1) Screening form:
NF resident turned 21 years old - Conduct PE
The alert will help the LAs detect when a resident turns 21 years of age and recommend appropriate specialized services by conducting and submitting a new PASRR Evaluation (PE). The PL1 form history will be automatically updated with the system-generated alert.
NF Unable to Serve Alert
When an NF certifies that they cannot meet the needs of an individual on a PL1 (via the “Unable to Serve the Individual” button), the LTC Online Portal will generate the following alert for LAs and the PASRR Unit:
NF unable to serve the person - Place person in another NF or alternate setting
This new alert will notify the LAs and the PASRR Unit, in a timely manner, that the NF has certified on the PL1 that they cannot meet the individual’s needs. The LAs can then place the individual in the appropriate setting.
