    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.

    CODING -I1QQ Renal Failure?

    hello, question for coding I1QQ-Renal Failure do you only put yes when they are on dialysis? that would be considered renal failure. What if they have chronic kidney disease (CKD)? ARF? CKD stage 3? thanks

    Physician orders section p8?

    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?.

How would you write a raps for a patient that triggered short term and long term memory problem, moderately impaired in B4(cognitive skills for daily decision making) and C4 coded 2 sometimes understood. CVA patient. any example would be great thank you. salamat!
