Preadmission screening (PAS) is for anyone planning to be admitted into a nursing home. It is legally required to measure a person’s need for nursing home level of care and to connect them with supportive services. Health care providers submit a PAS to the Senior LinkAge Line, which manages PAS in Minnesota.
Depending on a person’s results, they could receive an in-person assessment from their county or a call from the Senior LinkAge Line make sure they have what they need.
If you are a health care professional who is submitting a PAS, go to the Senior LinkAge Line’s referral site to begin the process.
