In our facility, the SSD, Activities, Dietary and Therapy give me there sections on paper, they have the resident name, assessment type and ARD on their sections. I key it in and complete the MDS. The R2b date is the day that it is keyed into the computer and complete. I sign off on the sections that I do and date the same as the R2b, the other IDT's sign off on their sections and date same R2b but sometimes they are not signing it that day, is this considered back dating?
If so, should they be signing the actual date they review it? I shred the info they give me once it is signed off by them. Also the RN never dates after she signs because the R2b date is already printed where she signs. Is this correct?
