Do you think that your loved one needs to be placed in a skilled nursing facility? It’s important to know that there are certain requirements that have to be met.
The Patient Review Instrument (PRI) is a medical evaluation tool that determines whether or not an individual is eligible for skilled nursing home placement. It is mandated by law that a PRI, be performed by a registered nurse. A PRI and Screen is valid in NY State for 90 days, as long as the patient’s health status has not changed. It is used to determine the level of care and the type of facility required. It includes medical condition, treatments and medications needed, special diets or therapies needed, physical and mental abilities and limitations, ability to perform acts of daily living such as eating moving and toileting, behaviors such as aggressiveness and disruptiveness.
