2100, Purpose of PASRR

Revision 22-1; Effective Nov. 28, 2022

PASRR screening and evaluation must be administered to identify:

  • people seeking admission to a nursing facility (NF) who have MI, ID or DD;

  • eligibility for specialized services.

The process begins with the referring entity, the first entity (RE)  that considers admission into an NF for a person.
