MDS 3.0 Question!

  1. Hello Guys and Gals! I had a patient that came into the facility (SNF) on private pay hospice and they died in the facility 6 days later. What kind of assessment should be done. My nurse consultant said to do only a death in facility but the assessment turns red when i answer the question "yes" to "is this the first assessment". I dont know what I should was too early to do an admission assessment and yet I dont have the option of doing an admission and death in the facility together. HELP!!!

    Assuming you already did the Entry record: Admission.

    For both tracking records (entry or death in facility), choose "NO" to "Is this assm't the first assm't..." --> A0310E = 0

    Right, thats where the problem was...i was picking "yes" for the "is this the 1st assmt" question when i was doing the entry. Thanks for the help! Reallly appreciated!
