The hospital discharge exemption is the only true exemption from the requirements of PASRR. The exemption applies to individuals who are discharged from a hospital into a Medicaid-certified nursing facility (NF) and their stay is expected to last no more than 30 days. If an individual admitted to a NF under the hospital discharge exemption stays in the NF longer than 30 days, PASRR must be completed by calendar day 40. Follow the standard processes for completing PASRR in these circumstances.
