The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services - through the Quality Improvement Organization program - has posted a facility assessment tool template to its website for nursing facilities to download and use. According to the U.S. Code of Federal Regulation (§483.70(e)), nursing facilities will conduct, document and annually review a facility-wide assessment, which includes both the facility's resident population and the resources the facility needs to care for its residents. It is optional for nursing facilities to use this template, and if used, it may be modified. Each facility has the flexibility to decide the best way to comply with this requirement.
