Home Health Quality Measures: Potentially Avoidable Events
This four-page tool defines the outcome measures known as Potentially Avoidable Events (PAE) and includes an overview of their role in the State Survey Protocols. Understanding each PAE’s “Specifications for Calculation” is an important factor when evaluating whether the outcome is due to OASIS error or identifies a quality of care concern. This tip sheet describes which OASIS items and responses are used in the calculation of each PAE along with important OASIS guidance to ensure accurate data collection.
This cheat sheet is available in both printed and digital download format.
