MDS Tips and Clinical Pearls (QIPMO Newsletter)
The Quality Improvement Program for Missouri's Long-Term Care Facilities (QIPMO) will send gerontologic nurse specialists to Missouri nursing facilities. They will provide information and assistance related to clinical issues of interest to long-term care staff. QIPMO is a cooperative program between the MU Sinclair School of Nursing and the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) with funding by DHSS using the Missouri Quality of Care fund (senate bill 556). QIPMO nurses are not surveyors from the Department of Health and Senior Services. The site visits are treated confidential.
If your facility is in Missouri, QIPMO nurse consultants will help refine your quality improvment programs. Members of the QIPMO team can also help you learn to download, read, and interpret your state and federal MDS quarterly reports and help simplify the quarterly MDS data. The nurses can also provide clinical practice consultations and inservice training sessions for your staff to help improve nursing care in those areas where you would like to see improvement.
LOOK! The QIPMO clinical educators often send out e-mails containing important information and updates in the long-term care industry. If you would like to sign up to be on one of our e-mail distribution lists, please contact Jessica Mueller. (If you believe you have previously requested to be placed on a distribution list but have not been receiving e-mails, please let Jess know so we can double-check for you.)
For more information or to arrange a QIPMO visit, please contact Jess. She can arrange to have a QIPMO clinical consultant return your call to schedule a visit to your facility.Jessica Mueller
