Sometimes my HHA has told me to date my OASIS visit for a date earlier than the actual date I did the assessment. Often that date is on a day I didn't work (I work only 2 days/wk). I reluctantly did this once, but have been refusing since, so they will give the visit to another RN and most of them just do it.
The DON has several reasons including no nurse available to do the SOC within the first 2 days after referral, sometimes its a recert that the office failed to schedule on time, etc. Once there was a SOC that was a missed visit, but the LVN was seeing the patient for 3 weeks. They told me to see the patient and date my SOC a month earlier. I refused to do the visit.
This sounds like falsifying documentation. Is this common? I need advice.
