Dashing

Posted

Hi MDS team,

I have a patient with a quarterly due 5/1. Working on the assessment I found out a patients Covid result came back positive on the same day of ARD 5/1, so I switch my quarterly to Sig Change. However now I have to dash section F.

Sig. change is not determined by the diagnosis alone. The criteria for 2 or more areas of change that can be irreversible/prolonged must still be met.

If that’s the case all events not attained in the look back period will be excluded or dashed.
