Talino if you're out there I want to know what you think about this because you're the smartest coordinator I know.My regional mds consultant swears it is OK to lock sections of the mds assessment PRIOR to the ard, even the ones that are not interview sections (g,h,i,m,n) as long as u go back and recheck it. Aside from the stupidity of having to look at it again why on earth would u want it to appear that you've locked a section before the ard? There's no way she can be correct, right? If you say she is right, then I'll believe it. But that's the only way I'm buying what she's selling.
