When the Psychosocial Outcome Severity Guide became effective in 2006, it became apparent that CMS expected Social Services to be much more involved in the care planning process. The Social Service care plans in this manual cover the possible psychosocial needs residents may have in response to issues, illnesses, medications, and/or other factors. Text, care plans, and forms specific to certain medications in the Psychotropic Medication section reflect changes to the State Operations Manual, Appendix P, Medication Pass and Pharmacy Services. The CD-ROM contains all of the forms and care plans from the book, and these can easily be made resident and facility specific using a word processor.
