  2. coding isolation
    So why have this item on the MDS at all? If contact, droplet, etc don't meet the criteria then the only people who could code it possibly are the ones in swing beds.

  15. tPA Question
    That is interesting. I get them after all the damage is done (SNF), so didn't know initial a CVA wouldn't show on a CT unless hemm. I guess I assumed that a clot or such would show at that time.
