PRI & Screen
Defining your care journey with expert screening.
An Essential Assessment Tool for Quality Care
The Patient Review Instrument (PRI) and Screen is a New York State assessment tool that plays a crucial role in evaluating the cognitive and physical skill levels of a person. Administered by a licensed nurse, this assessment helps determine the appropriate level of care a senior may require or can be required for admission to certain living facilities.
At Reflections Management and Care, we have a dedicated team of licensed nurses who are trained and qualified to conduct PRI and Screen assessments. They not only perform the assessments but also assist with applications for admission into living facilities. This assessment is typically not necessary for individuals entering assisted living or independent living communities but is mandatory for those needing skilled nursing care.
