OK, Im helping a friend who dosent even know AllNurses, but will be a convert when I am done.. Im sure!
She forgot to put in an MDS that should have been done in October.
Send out the e-mail request with the ARD as it should have been, and signature 7 days from that? She thinks it is legal, becuase the info is collected is from that timeframe. I say its not, because you are esentially back dating. I think you cant do a pain or cognitive interview at this point and call it that point....
Do the MDS with the ARD, but a signature date of now/today, and a late submission?
She told a few people that the first option I mentioined is not illegal.
I cant see how it isnt. Im having a problem with the whole thing.
She is waiting on my responsee, and we are both scouring the manual.. help!!
