PASRR requirements prior to admission of new residents.

Prior to every admission of a new resident, the nursing facility must:
(1) Verify that a PASRR level I screening has been completed, and deny admission until that screening has been completed.
(2) Verify that a PASRR level II evaluation has been completed when the individual's PASRR level I screening indicates that the individual may have serious mental illness and/or intellectual disability or related condition, and deny admission until that evaluation has been completed, unless all three of the following criteria apply and are documented in the PASRR level I screening:
(a) The individual is admitted directly from a hospital after receiving acute inpatient care;
(b) The individual requires nursing facility services for the condition for which he or she received care in the hospital; and
(c) The individual's attending physician has certified that the individual is likely to require fewer than thirty days of nursing facility services.
(3) Decline to admit any individual whose PASRR level II evaluation determines that he or she does not require nursing facility services or that a nursing facility placement is otherwise inappropriate.
(4) Coordinate with PASRR evaluators to the maximum extent practicable in order to avoid duplicative assessments and effort, and to ensure continuity of care for nursing facility residents with a serious mental illness and/or an intellectual disability or related condition.
