The PASRR Technical Assistance Center helps states fulfill the goals of Preadmission Screening and Resident Review

PASRR in Natural Disasters

CMS developed this document in the wake of Hurricane Katrina and has updated it after Hurricane Sandy in fall 2012. It presents issues, risks, and comments that arise when displaced persons are evaluated for transfer into nursing facility (NF), whether from a facility in the same state or from a facility in a different state. 

The issues raised in the document should generally apply to any disaster or emergency that leads to a large number of persons being displaced.

PTAC currently serves as a contractor for CMS.
