hello, i have a question about section I2J urinary tract infection in last 30 days. If a patient was admitted from another hospital and had a UTI and was resolved (antibiotic tx finish) before admission to my unit and i'm doing a 7day MDS do i have to code YES on I2J if the UTI was within the last 30 day? or not if it was resolved already? thanks for any reply.

hello guys question, we have a patient from Dubai came to america to get some medical help, no insurance no social security. just got discharge yesterday 8 day stay in subacute unit. my question is do i have to do MDS to this patient? theres a section that ask for SS# and it won't complete unless i put something on it. In subacute if our patient is paying by private insurance example cigna, blue cross. I still have to do a 14day complete assestment, but if their self pay i'm lost. please help if you know the answer.
I work in subacute unit @ chicago, all our patient are in and out of our unit. so basically all i do is 5 day and 14 day complete assestment. so according to manual during admission orders that day is not counted when you code how many new orders in mds? is it correct?.
