When does a Level I screen need to be conducted?
According to CFR 42-§483.102, a PASRR Level I screen must be completed for all applicants to a Medicaid-certified nursing facility, regardless of payer. A Level I screen must be completed before a resident can be admitted into a nursing facility. If a current nursing facility resident experiences a significant change in his or her mental or physical condition, the individual is subject to a Resident Review evaluation.
