    IF we had a certified dietary manager, I would have him/her complete the oral (nutrion) section. But our dietary manager is still going to school and I am doing his part. This has been a sore spot for me since the certified manager left over a year ago!!

    Hey tex, our CDM does section K only. I do dehydration, feeding tubes and dental.

    Just getting different views. When I went to a state meeting, several surveyors stated that these are the sections most commonly done in NC. But as I live and breath, I am getting to the point that the state is saying, do as I say, not as I do. Thanks again Tex
