    I work as as a full time RD in a SNF.We currently have a consultant RN acting as RNAC for our MDS assessments until a new one is hired.I hope it is soon! For all you coordinators out there...please fill me in how you plan timing for your quarterly assessments to maximize input from all disciplines and the family,using flexibility in the regs.Do you sign of RB2 early sometimes?
    As an example,we have a quarterly coming up
    FEB.1,the 90th day from the last RB2.I asked this RNAC to at least set the ARD on 1/28 so I could have time to review and sign off my section no earlier than JAN 29. (so all shifts of Jan 28 are considered.) and be prepared to update the careplan on FEB 1 at our resident care conference.She says that if we use this ARD date (JAN 28)that we should all sign off then and wants to use FEB 1.Isn't the ARD just a reference point of time for all disciplines,a date which may or may not be the same as RB2 as long as it is no later than RB2? I am pulling my hair out.HELP!!!!
