MDS LTC Questions

  1. Can anyone tell me the difference between a skilled nursing facility & a subacute facility. Is staffing and patient mix dofferent? Is each reimbursed at a different rate under PPS?

    And #2 - How long does it take on average to complete a PPS MDS Assessment with approximately 8 RAPs including RAPs, RAP Summaries & Care Plans but not including data entry. I'm afraid I may be very slow as it takes me anywhere from 4-8 hours depending on documentation & number of conflicts
