Nursing Home Reform Act (OBRA PASRR)


The Pre-Admission Screen and Resident Review (PASRR) process is designed to ensure that people living in nursing facilities (NF) who are also affected by mental illness and/or developmental disability receive federally required evaluations.

Referred to as Level II evaluations, these are required to determine the individual's service needs, to ensure that NF care is warranted, and if such care is appropriate, to identify any special service needs for the individual. 

These Level II screens are required by federal law to be performed prior to admission (Preadmission Screen) and promptly following any significant changes in a resident's status (Resident Review). 

If you have questions or need assistance with the PASRR process, please contact Ann Seanor (Interim) at the Office of Behavioral Health.
