Listen to Regulatory Specialist Diane Brown talk about the PHQ-9, one of several new resident interviews nursing homes will complete under the MDS 3.0.
An estimated 11% of nursing home residents had pressure ulcers in 2004, according to a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) study.
Under the MDS 3.0, staff members will interview residents about their mood using the nine-item Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9).
In preparing for the 3.0 transition, I am using the MDS 3.0 vs MDS 2.0 crosswalk issued by CMS. The crosswalk’s section numbers and order are different from the MDS 3.0 draft I am using.
