I sent through my first batch to CMS. It went through. I talked to DOH here and they said yesterday was the first day they got a kickback of information from CMS. It looks like there is going to be a nice delay.
Can you get your validation report? We are having trouble retrieving ours.

I submitted my first batch yesterday and retrieved my validation report.

Have also received several validation reports - needless to say, we were thrilled - it means all this new 3.0 stuff is coming together, and actually working.

I've submitted and gotten validation reports back. One lady's MDS had a fatal error; it was because the date she was first admitted to the facility was entered in the MM/DD/YYYY format, and the validation report said it should've been entered in the YYYY/MM/DD format. ...When there's only one way to enter the date onto the MDS 3.0 form!!! (MM/DD/YYYY). One person's MDS simply will not print out, several keep spitting out mysterious error messages and erases info I work so hard to input.....You've gotta be kidding me!!!!!!!!
There's many asinine error messages like that, a lot of them are stupid computer glitches. I've called and e-mailed our software company; no resolution to the problems yet.
I told myself I would refuse to let these little problems get to me, yet lately I feel the stress just sucking the life out of me.....I'm ready to go work at McDonalds!

Any validation reports you've received are no good because there is a glitch in CMS processing program. You can keep transmitting to register your work but don't submit for a validation report on Casper until the CMS site says it's up and running.

as of this Friday, I've been able to submit but the Casper report still says 'waiting'.

i wonder if all this differs from state to state?
the facility i just left told us to transmit, but we weren't able to validate. this facility has told us not to transmit at all. i think cms accepting transmissions was down for a while, but i think it's up and running again, not the validation process though. i am told by this company NOT to transmit. soooo i am not, until told.
i appreciate everyone's input on various subjects such as unplanned discharges and only putting what you know and "dashing" some parts. a five day for reimbursement if needed of course, but the discharge is only a tracking device. i would suggest if d/c home to make sure the community resourses was checked.
