I am back in the MDS world after 4 years of nursery/L&D, so help refresh my memory. When is it appropiate to do a medicare readmission/return assessment? Does it replace the 5 day? I can't remember!!! Thanks!

It is a 5 day assessment....you use this assessment when a Medicare A covered resident goes out to the hospital, then returns and continues under Part A.

Thanks Catnip, I couldn't believe my RAI manual didn't have this info in it. Glad you were here!
