Hello All, I have a question about locomotion on and off unit. Resident's that are independent with wheel chair mobility at times and also pushed by staff where do they fall as far as coding. Also we have a paranoid resident with a Dx of dementia with delirium I need advice for a care plan. Any suggestions on these. Thanks in advance.

You can check with your state's coordinator. I checked with ours d/t disagreement in our building and was told to code as 3/2 (if occurs >3 times) as staff is providing the care- pushing the w/c. You need to check if this occurs on and/or off unit- maybe only off the unit, but remember off unit means the RS propel self to the end of the unit and THEN staff pushed the w/c and same for the return trip. I explain in notes/RAP that RS is both Ind, but staff also push w/c ex: when tired, having pain, confused, etc
