The purpose of this memo is to inform nursing homes that 42 CFR 483.75(l)(5) (exit DHFS) requires the nursing facility to keep a copy of the PASARR Level I, the Level II, and the results of other preadmission screening(s) in the resident’s clinical record. Also, 42 CFR 483.106(b)(4)(ii) requires, in cases of transfer of a resident with mental illness or mental retardation from a nursing facility to a hospital or to another nursing facility, the transferring nursing facility is responsible for ensuring that copies of the resident’s most recent PASARR and resident assessment reports accompany the transferring resident.
