September 20, 2017


3 p.m.



This session will review the RoP infection prevention and control program updates and UTI and catheter insert/left in bladder quality measures that impact the Quality Measure component of the Nursing Home Compare Five-Star Quality Rating system. During the session, we will review how these measures are calculated and how they impact your overall Five-Star Quality Rating. The session will focus on best practices for reducing urinary tract infections and unnecessary catheter use in your facility and how to improve these measures using a QAPI framework with emphasis on reduction of common MDS coding errors and implementation of a facility specific Five Star road map action plan.  Sample tools will be shared for driving and sustaining Five Star Quality.
