Death in facility


I had a resident who admitted to skilled nursing unit on 7/1 and then expired on 7/6. Being that he was only on the unit for 5 days, I only completed an entry tracking on the day of admit and then a Death in facility tracking record on the day of expiration. Is this right or should there have been an admission assessment done (albeit an incomplete one)??

The Admission assm't is not required. If Med A eligible, a 5-day would be needed.
