Below are the details for these training sessions:

H/C PRI Training Outline

Training is provided to allow a Registered Nurse (RN) to complete the Hospital/Community patient review Instrument (H/C PRI).  This is a clinical tool used to assess a person’s condition and the amount of care required. The H/C PRI is required for admission to a Residential health care Facility (RHCF), for hospital patients on Alternative Level of Care (ALC), and for various other programs.

The course is for RNs in nursing facilities, hospitals (discharge planners or ALC determinations) or in community settings responsible for nursing facility placement.  Only Registered Nurses (RN) currently licensed may be certified as a PRI Assessor.  Social Workers or other health care professionals may find the training useful to understand the RHCF placement process.

PRI Assessor numbers, required to complete the H/C PRI form, will be granted only to RNs who successfully complete the program.

 

Fee for PRI, H/C PRI Training: $297.00
The registration fee includes course material, coffee during registration and lunch.

The LOCATIONS for the H/C PRI and SCREEN Training Sessions will be in Albany, Buffalo, Long Island, New York City, Syracuse and Rochester. The schedule of dates will give the specific locations.
