How are you coding the MDS if a pt. received 250mg of Vancomycin in 100cc NS TID?

If you're giving the IV meds via a heplock, Section K5a (Parenteral/IV) does not apply. Code IV meds in Section P1c only.
If resident however has IV fluids as a primary line, even if it's running KVO, then you can check K5a and add the 100 cc TID diluent to the primary IVF intake in Section K6.
