Pps 14 day assessment?

  1. Patient admitted to SNF 8/25 for Skilled nursing and Rehab and discharged on 9/8. Counting the date of admission, the RUG worksheet puts dc date as day 15, although patient was in facility for 14 midnights. Does a 14 day assessment need to be completed when the patient goes home on day 15?

    A PPS 14-day is not required since the 5-day RUG will pay you 'til day 14.
    However, an OBRA Admission MDS must be completed.
