    Facility had meeting for CNA's to explain new forms put into place, reason behind the paperwork (not just to give them something to do at the end of the shift) etc.
    Unfortunately the turnover lately has been pretty high, so this may need done again within the next month, for continuity.

    Hoping that the interview information gets turned in 'in a timely manner' so we can get started on the 3.0 assessments tomorrow. Due to this being new ground, it may be a rough couple weeks until the kinks are worked out.

    No form for pain. Just using the interview, and whatever documentation we have on pain in nurses notes & checking pain meds given - if the resident can't do the interview.
    Someone in our facility made a form for behaviors - just following along with the structure of the MDS itself, which is easy for anyone with some background on Microsoft Excel or Word.

    Hi how are you doing with the new MDS 3.0 do you do an ADL tracking for the whole month or the look back period?

    Answer to previous post: We are only capturing the ADL tracking for 7 days.

    Buzzed along today and got my first comprehensive 3.0 assessment done today. DON asked how long it took me, and I had to tell her that I didn't 'time myself', so I wasn't sure. This resident only triggered a couple of CAA's so that was very nice. Things are starting to get the kinks worked out, so I believe the flow of things will be greatly improved in the next couple weeks.

    Sect. A 2400 question: "Has this resident had a medicare covered stay since their most recent entry?"

    How is everyone else answering this? Are you entering dates of a past stay, say from 1/24/10 - 4/6/10?
    This is how we understood to answer this question, but the validation report had some statements on it about RUGS and missing information - due to the dates entered on A2400.

    As a consultant, I do not expect my MDS coordinators to do interviews for pain separate of the MDS as this should be part of the daily care. To avoid having to repeat this, your facility will need to develop an evidence based practice for pain management. Please visit Guestbook to request for a copy of pain assessment form that will address Section J interview and Section D.

    Answer to rukiddingme:

    Here's the answer to A2400: This section is used to:
    1) Identify when a resident is receiving services under the SNF PPS.
    2) Identify when a resident’s Medicare Part A stay begins and ends.
    3) The end date is used to determine if the resident’s stay qualifies for the short stay assessment.

    Answer "NO" and then skip to Section B if you are doing an OBRA assessment.

    Answer "YES" if you are doing a PPS assessment or if the assessment is combined with any type of PPS assessment. Enter the dates of: Start Date is Day 1 of Medicare coverage for which you are completing the PPS assessment for that admission and End date is the last covered date, enter dashes if resident is still receiving Medicare services.

    If you have other MDS questions, post your questions on: Guestbook
