After you "unzip" the file, look for (and print) Chapter 3. This chapter defines/clarifies how to accurately code each MDS item. You too, can become an MDS expert:bowingpur!!

"physician orders - includes written, telephone, fax, or consultation orders for new or altered treatment. does not include standard admission orders, return admission orders, renewal orders, or clarifying orders without changes. orders written on the day of admission as a result of an unexpected change/deterioration in condition or injury are considered as new or altered treatment orders and should be counted as a day with order changes."
