Resident admitted on 4/28/2011, Used ARD of 5/9/2011. Completed MDS and CAAs and she passed away on 5/11 (her 14th day). Do we send Adm. MDS? I think I tried to do this one other time with the CP date not done and it was rejected. I called out MDS state person and she said I don't need to send if were not in the facility on 15th day. Do I still print out what I do have for the closed record? Thanks.

Whatever your facility p/p dictates on retaining closed records. This is a footnote of p2-18 of the RAI --

3 The RAI is considered part of the resident's clinical record and is treated as such by the RAI utilization guidelines, e.g., portions of the RAI that are "started" must be saved.
