grace day wars

  1. I need some help from my fellow Director's here. I have a PPS Coordinator that is very good at what she does. She has a very narrow view of what the former grace day for therapy usage allowance is and fears an audit if they are used too often. There is a constant battle between my Administrator, Director of Therapy and her. She believes that with the new MDS 3.0 that there are no more grace days, I know this is true it is start of therapy. She stated that the 3 days can be used only at the beginning of therapy, not anywhere else in the therapy. My Administrator and Rehab Director seem to think she is being too conservative and is not maximizing the therapy days. Can someone please help me with opinions and facts in this matter. I am stuck in the middle!
    Thanks

    Perhaps you should post this in the MDS section. Talino is the smartest person around on MDSs and surely will know the answer. I thought grace days went away with 3.0 but I could be wrong.

    They did go away, but are still there, just not called that anymore. Thanks for the suggestion, I will re-post in MDS forum
