Coding and training staff


I have been using the RAI manual to train the staff in how to code their ADLS. I have ADON telling the staff to code differently than what manual says to get "higher RUG rates. I have tried to show them what the RAI says, but they refuse to listen to me. They are also going back and changing my answers after I have locked it, but before it has been submitted. I have refused to sign what has been changed,but I dont know what else to do. This is causing a lot of confusion for the staff and anxiety for me. Yes, the Admin knows and thinks what they are doing is ok.
