Q&A: How should we best schedule care conferences in order to stay in compliance with care plan completion dates?

By Carol Maher, RN-BC, CPC, RAC-MT - October 16, 2018

Question: How should we schedule our care conferences in order to stay in compliance with care plan completion dates?

Answer: We are given seven days to complete the care plan from MDS completion for comprehensive assessments. I try to have the care plan meeting within the week following MDS completion, even for Quarterlies. We finish completing the care plan at the meeting. The resident is part of the care planning team. The care plan meeting includes the resident and the CNA who cares for the resident, along with the other IDT members.
