Good afternoon,

I am a new MDS Coordinator, and would love some assistance on a question of mine. I have a resident that is due for a quarterly assessment now, however they have had a significant change as well. If I do the sig change, will I also need to completed the quarterly that is due as well?

Thanks in advance for all you help!

The Sig Change overrides the Quarterly. The Sig Change also resets the OBRA schedule, meaning a Quarterly is due on or before 92 days after the SCSA, and the Annual is due on or before 366 days after the SCSA.
