Skilled Nursing Facility Adverse Event Screening Tool

OIG developed the skilled nursing facility (SNF) adverse event trigger tool as part of its study, "Adverse Events in Skilled Nursing Facilities: National Incidence Among Medicare Beneficiaries" (OEI-06-11-00370), released in February 2014. The tool was developed with assistance from clinicians at the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI), which also published the tool for industry use. This product will describe the purpose, use, and benefits of the SNF adverse event trigger tool and the guidance document released by IHI, including the methodology for developing the instrument and the instrument's use in developing the February 2014 report findings. It will also describe related guidance to providers issued by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. The goal of this product is to disseminate practical information about the tool for use by those involved with the skilled nursing industry.
