5-Star QMs: Antipsychotic Use
August 18, 2020 | 2:00 pm ET

This session will review the antipsychotics quality measures that impact the Quality Measure component of the Nursing Home Compare Five-Star Quality Rating system. During the session, we will review how these measures are calculated and how they impact your overall Five-Star Quality Rating. The session will focus on best practices for reducing antipsychotic medications and chemical restraints in your facility and how to improve these measures using a QAPI framework with emphasis on reduction of common MDS coding errors and implementation of a facility specific Five Star road map action plan. Sample tools will be shared for driving and sustaining antipsychotic reduction efforts.
