We've been told we must do anything we can to keep our beds full-we accept admissions at any hour of the day (or night) and day of the week.Our admissions staff are aggressively recruiting (sounds like the NFL,doesn't it? ) short term skilled rehab and respite care residents. The social worker told us today that our Medicare "A" people should be self administering meds. Anyone ever heard of this? All of the residents have the right to do so but we can't MAKE them can we? We never did it before with Med A people-is this something" new and improved" like MDS 3.0?
PS-we heard thru the grapevine that our facility is also trying to bring in a dialysis company-in the old cafeteria-LOL! Sounds like a can of worms to me -unless it was completely dissassociated from us.
