Will you be ready when your MDS audit comes?

The Office of the Medicaid Inspector General (OMIG) is currently auditing nursing home Medicaid case-mix based on accuracy of MDS assessments and thoroughness of documentation.  While the initial audits focus on those nursing homes that increased their case-mix index by more than 5% in the January 2012 roster submission, OMIG intends to audit every nursing home in the state within two years.

Root Cause Analysis

Sometimes things can go wrong; an elopement, a serious medication error, a quality of care issue. When these events happen, the DOH looks at what procedures and policies are in place to investigate accidents and incidents. How does the facility engage in meaningful root cause analysis. Has the required investigation of the incident taken place that includes evidence of gathering and staff interviews? Facilities have been cited at the Immediate Jeopardy level and have been subject to fines and bans on admissions. Unfortunately, all too often, the deficits found are policies and procedures, staff education, or quality assurance activities that have failed to identify or correct vulnerabilities or effectively manage risk.
