For Quality Measure #154, if I screen a patient who says “YES” to having fallen 2 or more times in a year or falling once and getting injured, and I choose the numerators 3288F with 8P – Rish Assessment for Falls not Completed, Reason not Otherwise Specified, will this count against me for my scoring of at least 60% in order to pass?
You will need to look at the Measure Specification sheet for that measure. CMS provides examples how to calculate the different rates near the end of each measure.
