Reposting of Best Practices - DOH 12/15/2015

Facilities submit CMS 672 forms (Census and Condition) during each recertification survey. Contained on the CMS 672 form is the resident census (F78) at the time of the survey and the number of residents receiving antipsychotic medications (F134). The data is analyzed by the Division of Nursing Care Facilities (DNCF) and compared to the previous recertification survey data submitted on the CMS 672 form. If the percentage of antipsychotic use remains unchanged or is less than the previous recertification survey, DNCF requested that the facility share their best practice with others by submitting the program to DNCF for posting.
The link is to a spreadsheet indicating the facilities who have submitted their Best Practice Programs. Included on the spreadsheet is the facility name, the contact person, the phone number and the county where the facility is located. Facilities shared their program components of reducing the use of antipsychotic drug use so that the programs could be successfully implemented by others.

The spreadsheet indicating the Best Practices which were shared by facilities, was originally posted on the Message Board September 19, 2014 and last updated on July 13, 2015. Since the July 2015 posting, a few additional facilities submitted or updated their Best Practices. These new submissions/updates are indicated by an * after the facility name.

You may contact the facilities who are noted on the spreadsheet or you may contact DNCF at 717-787-1816 for information.
