The Restorative Nurse and PT are disagreeing on how to do the functional ROM testing for the MDS. THe PT person believes you look soley at the residents function not just their limitations in scoring; ie- they have some ROM in left arm but are still able to comb hair and brush teeth---she would code as a 0/0 because their limitations does not affect their functional ability. My restorative nurse disagrees and states that this wouldn't matter. I just took over doing the 672/802 and have read the instructions. We would have about 1/2 our residents triggering for the contractures because of ROM loss due to pain or other reasons does this sound right?? We only truly have about 6 diagnosed with contractures by an MD so the two are varing greatly. Any suggesstions. I thought having the therapy department taking a peaker woud help but it is making things worse...now my restorative nurse is upset.
