Complacency about mastering the MDS process is the enemy of improving payment and the quality of care in your facility. It's not a smart career move either. She who knows the most about the MDS, wins -- and so does the facility. But so often, people rely on outdated RAI instructions or myths that drain away payment and create inaccurate care plans. And that only saddles the facility with F tags and a negative reputation.
Never fear: Part 2 of this series on MDS basics will bring you up to speed fast on the finer points of coding key RUG drivers and MDS items that trigger the RAPs. MDS experts Kristen Mastrangelo, OTR, MBA, NHA, and Elisa Bovee, MS, OTR/L, will show you how to legitimately boost RUG payment and produce care plans that'll have surveyors raving.
