MDS Discharge Assessment Corrections due by September 30th

Karen Morris and Nancy Leveille in Clinical & Quality

Reminder – Facilities only have until September 30th to correct any incomplete or unsubmitted discharge assessments for residents who no longer reside in their facility (see August 29 Member Mailing to view the CMS S&C letter #13-56.) Surveyors could cite the facility under F tag 287, Accuracy of Assessments, if discharge assessments are not completed properly. To insure compliance with this requirement, check the “MDS 3.0 Roster” CASPER report in the QIES ASAP system for any residents who are still listed on the roster but no longer reside in your facility. You will need to complete and/or submit discharge assessments for these residents by the September 30 deadline.
