    LOA

    Resident went on LOA for 4 days during the look back period . Resident receives anticoagulant and diuretic meds that were sent home with her. Do I count the LOA days in section N ?

    Healed Pressure Ulcer

    Hi : Please everyone ....... What is the answer to the following question? Regarding Section M 0900. Question MO900A This is the scenario: Patient had a stage 111 pressure ulcer coded on May's assessment. At the time of the next assessment in August the pressure ulcer was still not healed. I coded M0900A as 1 "yes" on the assessment for August. The MDS coordinator in charge insists that M0900A should be " 0" , her reasoning is that the heading of the section states " HEALED PRESSURE ULCER." Today she even had the DON backing her up. So what is the correct answer please?

    Ambulation

    To clarify: There are patients who ambulate on the unit with restorative nursing or some patients go to physical therapy and gets ambulation but do not ambulate other than those times. We were told not to code them as "walking" in section G. Just need some clarification. Thanks

    Entry date

    According to how I understood it in the manual : the DRA and entry tracking is not necessary only if the temporary home visit is of at least one night. Resident was out on LOA for 2 nights. Am I misunderstanding something? Thanks

    Entry date

    Patient went home on LOA for 2 nights. Since a DRA has to be done should the entry date A1600 be changed on his return ?

    ENTRY DATE

    Thanks for the response to my entry date question. So since the resident was on medicare A during the first few months of admission do we need to keep putting those start and end date A2400 a/b/c on the subsequent assessments if the resident was never discharged?

    ENTRY DATE

    Hello everyone. My question relates to date of entry A1600. Example: A resident was admitted on the medicare unit under medicare A then after a few months the payer source was changed and she was moved to the long term area (medicaid) and was placed under hospice service in the same facility. Each time the resident has a room change or change in payor source or status etc then billing adds that date as the most recent date unto the entry date section in MDI and a nurse is choosing the most recent date from billing as the entry date If the resident was never discharged from the facility in the above example what dates should A1600 and A2400 A/B/C be on the significant change assessment or future quarterly assessment?. Thanks for your response.

    New to MDS

    I am new to MDS and got a position on a long term unit covering 80 patients recently. I am getting mixed answers to the following questions . If a Resident was admitted last November to the Medicare Unit and has never left the facility but was transferred to the long term care unit in the same facility several weeks later. What is the correct coding for A1600 and A1700 on the MDS quarterly assessment. Thanks for your response.
