There are over 15,000 skilled nursing facilities in the United States, according to the Center for Medicare and Medicaid.
There are over 175 Federal Regulations that each of the United States’ skilled nursing facilities must comply with on an on-going basis in order to maintain compliance with The Center for Medicare and Medicaid. As with other medical records, the nursing home record should be well organized and complete. This is whether it is paper based or electronic record. If the record is not well maintained, then it will cause concerns when State inspectors’ survey the nursing homes on behalf of the state based Department or Health or Federal Inspectors.
A nursing home record can be voluminous depending on how long a resident has been at a facility. Even for a short stay in a skilled nursing facility a medical record can contain hundreds of pages. Many nursing homes do not have a medical records department or designated person to organize records. So, when a record is not accurate or not complete, these records get stored “as is” and are not organized in any particular fashion.
