Product Description

Don't lose revenue to poor documentation.

Frustrated with the lack of documentation while completing the initial Medicare 5-day or Return/Readmission MDS assessments? This lack of documentation could lead to loss of reimbursement capture during the SNF stay. Join expert Jennifer Gross to get the information you need to develop the pre-admission screening tools that will help you capture all of the reimbursement that you're entitled to.

Here's what you will learn:

  • Identify RUG drivers as well as clinical issues so you can be prepared to admit the resident.
  • Best practices for admission screener hospital visits.
  • A+ checklist of important RUG and clinical items that you can use to capture data for coding on the MDS.
  • How to recognize situations that could include RUG items such as IVs and oxygen.
  • Do-Not-Miss items that are often overlooked in pre-admission screening but are important for a complete assessment.

Have additional questions? You have the floor with the speaker during an interactive Q&A.

Who should attend? MDS coordinators, administrators, directors of nursing and admission directors.
