Case study
Case study

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.

Case study questions
Case Study questions?

  • What would be your recommendations for overall system evaluation and revision?

  • What would be your recommendations for staff education?

  • How could the facility medical records specialist be utilized to prevent similar problems from occurring in the future?


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.

Rehab levels
Rehab levels

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.

Rehabilitation services
Rehabilitation Services

2 voluntary accrediting agencies for rehab facilities

Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) and the Commission for Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF)

Cms criteria for inpatient rehabilitation

  • Promotion of the program’s evaluation and treatment philosophy

Functional independent measure fim
Functional Independent measure (FIM)

FIM scores are an reliable and valid instrument in documenting the severity of disabilities as well as outcomes in rehabilitation. FIM scores are issued in thirteen motor and five cognitive areas. Each area receives a score ranging from one to seven.

Changes in rehab
Changes in Rehab

  • Due to rising hospital costs and shorter inpatient stays, there is an increased need for more sub-acute and outpatient rehabilitation facilities. Outpatient and freestanding rehabilitation clinics will also increase.
