Ugh! I think I have a question, lol... I am not sure though... getting so confused since the changes! If patient admits 9/19, starts PT 9/20 and has first ard (5 day) on 9/26 with a RUG of RMX, then has 14 day ard on 10/2 with a RUG again of RMX, 7 day look back done on 10/10 not COT required, next 7 day look back would be due 10/17 if patient were here, 30 day PPS ard is 10/16, pt had expected return to hospital for planned surgery 10/17... I can combine the 30 day with the dc,and my RUG is still RMX for the 30 day/discharge assessment... but am I doing this correct? I feel like I am missing something because of the scheduled ard for the 30 day being on 10/16 and the dc being on 10/17... I know one day it will be clearer but right now I am either over thinking it or dense.
Thank you for any help or clarification
