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?
