I've always been told that MDS is "in charge" if you will, as far as leading, setting ARD's, especially the 5 day, etc...99% of the time we use the 8th day. I set a 5 day up and I got a semi nasty email telling me to hold off, that the therapy manager would tell me when the 5 day would be. My problem is, if I don't set it up soon enough I'm risking default. How early do you all set up your 5 day assessments? I never had this issue until a new therapy manager started.
