Unlike skilled nursing centers, assisted living communities are not required to publicly report antipsychotic data. To track this data for assisted living communities, NCAL has collaborated with the New Jersey Hospital Association to form the National Patient Safety Organization for Assisted Living (PSO). The primary function of a PSO is to allow healthcare providers to report quality and patient safety data without fear of legal discovery.
Through the PSO, NCAL members can electronically submit their performance on clinical performance outcomes (including antipsychotic use) and processes.
If your community is not an NCAL member and would like to join the PSO, you can contact your AHCA/NCAL State Affiliate
to learn about joining AHCA/NCAL to be eligible to sign up for the PSO.
