May RAI Manual Update – CMS Identifies Error

Karen Morris and Nancy Leveille in Clinical & Quality

CMS has identified an error on page 5-2 of the RAI User’s Manual for the MDS 3.0 that was updated in May. Under Completion Timing, the second bullet currently states:

“For the admission assessment, the MDS Completion date (Z0500B) must be no later than 13 days after the Assessment Reference date (ARD) (A2300.) This is an error, it should read:

“For the admission assessment, the MDS Completion date (Z0500B) must be no more than 13 days after the entry date (A1600).
