You are the consultant for the long-term-care facility that has recently undergone a survey in which the facility received several deficiencies for noncompliance with federal requirements. The most significant deficiency involved a noted pattern (7 out o10 examples) in which comprehensive assessments (MDS) were not completed within the required time frame (within 14 days of admission). In addition, suveyors identified that there was no documentation to support that the triggered RAPs were being used in the assessment and care planning process. It was also noted that the nursing staff stated they did not understand what the resident assessment protocols were and they were unaware of the federal criteria for determining when a significant change had occurred. The administrator of this facility has called you to help develop a plan to correct these deficiencies.
Rehabilitation is the development of a person to the fullest physical, psychological, social, vocational, and educational potential consistent with his or her physiological anatomic impairment and environmental limitations.
Acute rehabilitation- rehabiliative care provided for two to ten weeks until the patient is medicallly stable and has reached his or her maximum short-term improvement
Postacute rehab- a setting providing long-term therapy to maximize functional status for patients who have successfully completed acute rehab, or have passed all acute medical problems, or are medically stable and ready for postacute rehab.
Subacute rehab- rehabilitative care of lesser intensity provided to patients who have a discharge goal to return home or to a less restrictive environment, but are unable to participate or benefit from a higher level of rehabilitative care.
