Provider Letter No. 17-16 – Guidelines Regarding Plans of Correction Associated with a PASRR Violation
Nursing facilities (NFs) must comply with both state and federal requirements related to Preadmission Screening and Resident Review (PASRR).
Effective immediately, facilities must include DADS-provided, web-based PASRR training for, at a minimum, the nursing facility administrator and the director of nursing in all POCs associated with any PASRR violation. POCs that do not include such training will not be accepted.
The Provider Letter published on May 2, states that the following DADS-provided, web-based PASRR course is acceptable and available to NFs. A certificate of completion will serve as evidence of fulfilling the training requirement. PASRR for Providers: https://www.dads.state.tx.us/training/cbt/PASRR/
