Sample Cue Cards

Working to improve the quality of care delivery to nursing home residents.

Why should you have a formalized process for both the Resident Mood Interview and Staff Assessment of Resident Mood?

There are 2 versions of both the Resident Mood Interview cue card and the Staff Assessment cue card. Both versions contain virtually the same information taken directly from the MDS 3.0. The only difference is one of formatting… with or without a large print header. The choice is yours.

The suggestion is that you offer the appropriate cue card for all interviews (both resident and staff) with a focus on the "descriptive language" choices for symptom frequency as opposed to counting individual days.

For the depressive symptoms quality measure, a code of “half or more of the days” may qualify the resident to trigger the quality measure… while a code of "several days: will not.
