A resident was admitted on 4/4/11. They were out to the ER from 2230 4/10 until 0330 4/11, being gone over midnight, but not admitted. I understand 4/10 will be the skip day, and that I may need to adjust the PPS schedule. My question is, if I need to use grace days for the 5day PPS, would it then be ok to use day 8 as 4/12/11 including the skip day? I am also concerned my software and QIES will flag it as a late assessment as it would be the 9th day from their admission date. Would I be better off going no later than actual Day 8 (not counting the skip day)?
The only info I found on skip days in the RAI was on page 2-64. Is there more info I overlooked?
