The FRS-Fracture Risk Scale automatically identifies long-term care residents’ one year fracture risk. The FRS is embedded within the RAI-MDS (Resident Assessment Instrument Minimum Data Set) – 2.0 or LTCF versions.
Why is the FRS important?
- The FRS is the first tool of its kind developed specifically for the LTC population. It makes assessment for fractures easy
- Improved quality of life for residents – fractures can have life-changing and debilitating consequences.
- Improved care to reduce pain, disability, and transfers to hospital.
How can I access FRS?
The FRS is embedded in MDS 2.0 software as provided by PointClickCare or the LTCF. Ask your software vendor about your home’s FRS implementation status.
