Q&A: How do we establish section GG goals when a resident is not on therapy’s caseload?
Q&A: Why am I receiving warning message, -3907, on the Final Validation Report when we did code at least one goal in section GG?
Q&A: We use half side rails to improve bed mobility and transfers. Am I correct to not code these as restraints because they are used as enablers?
Q&A: When a Medicare resident has more than one stay during an episode, does prior function (GG0100) and prior device use (GG0110) apply to the prior to admission entry or to the most recent Medicare reentry?
Challenge Question: Which of the following is the correct way to code the scripted interview items after a resident unexpectedly discharges back to the hospital?
Q&A: A resident admitted with two pressure ulcers that have since merged together. Should we still consider as present on admission?
Q&A: Does CMS expect us to complete the scripted Resident Interview for Daily Preferences interview to obtain resident preferences in the first 48 hours for the Baseline Care Plan?
Q&A: Who is responsible for completing the functional assessment for section GG when the resident is not receiving PT or OT?
Q&A: How should we best schedule care conferences in order to stay in compliance with care plan completion dates?
Q&A: Given that O0100G (Non-Invasive Ventilator) is only coded on Comprehensive assessments, how should I code a BiPAP or CPAP on a Quarterly assessment?
Q&A: I have worked in some facilities that code C-diff as isolation at O0100M and some that do not. Which is correct?
Q&A: Could you please clarify when and where deep tissue injuries (DTI) and other unstageable pressure ulcers will be included in Quality Measures?
Q&A: Would I code a diagnosis as active in section I, if a resident does not receive any medications to treat the diagnosis, however, the physician documented as an active diagnosis in the progress notes?
Q&A: Is it allowed for IDT members to sign the MDS before the ARD? For example, can the dietitian sign section K and the therapist sign section O items one day before the ARD?
Q&A: Are we required to care plan the functional discharge goals that are established in section GG?
