Late Submission

Published

If entry was submitted late, more than 14 days after A1600, how its going to affect MDS/Nursing? Also if we have only one assessment with dash related to weight(K0200B), is this going to affect payment determination?

Thank you.

Late submission becomes a survey issue if recurrent. One or two may be negligible but always document reason and have a plan of correction in place.

Dashing weight affecting payment only applies if it’s a 5-day PPS. A single occurrence is unlikely.
