MDS 3.0 Focused Pilot Surveys were conducted in June and July of
2014 in 5 states, and in 2015 the MDS Focus Surveys were conducted
in all states. The Surveys consist of a review of MDS 3.0
assessments, medical records, interviews with staff and residents,
and resident observations. This enables Surveyors to review
the nursing home resident assessment processes in-depth, more so
than during an annual survey. The MDS Focus Survey, the Focused
Survey Facility Worksheet, the Electronic Staffing Data Submission
Payroll Based Journal, and the Preparation for MDS Focus Survey are
included in the attachments below.
