The National Association of PASRR Professionals (NAPP) is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to advancing the profession of individuals and organizations working in the federally mandated Pre-admission Screening and Resident Review Program (PASRR).
Preadmission Screening and Resident Review
Preadmission Screening and Resident Review (PASRR) is a federal requirement to help ensure that individuals are not inappropriately placed in nursing homes for long term care. PASRR requires that 1) all applicants to a Medicaid-certified nursing facility be evaluated for serious mental illness (SMI) and/or intellectual disability; 2) be offered the most appropriate setting for their needs (in the community, a nursing facility, or acute care settings); and 3) receive the services they need in those settings.

Long-Term Care Ombudsman Resources
Mental Health Ombudsman Training Materials
The following slide presentations come from a training manual that was developed in 2004 for the NY Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program by Dr. Susan Wehry, Associate Professor, University of Vermont College of Medicine. The goals of the training curriculum are to increase ombudsman comfort level in working with residents living in adult homes with mental health needs and to increase ombudsman ability to effectively advocate for these residents.
