CMS Posts IRF Quality Reporting Materials

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has posted PowerPoint slides and presentation materials from the inpatient rehabilitation facility (IRF) quality reporting “Train the Trainer” conference held May 2 in Baltimore. The materials are available at www.cms.gov/Medicare/Quality-Initiatives-Patient-Assessment-Instruments/IRF-Quality-Reporting/Spotlights-Announcements.html. Effective Oct. 1, IRFs will be required to submit quality data on two measures: 1) pressure ulcers that are new or worsened since admission; and 2) catheter-associated urinary tract infections.
