Reminder: MDS 3.0 Discharge Assessments

This reminder is available on the CMS MDS 3.0 RAI Manual webpage:

www.cms.gov/Medicare/Quality-Initiatives-Patient-Assessment-Instruments/NursingHomeQualityInits/MDS30RAIManual.html.

CMS is providing an opportunity to rectify the current situation related to missing and incomplete discharge assessments.  Homes must complete missing discharge assessments as soon as possible, but no later than September 30, 2013.  Homes can self-audit their MDS assessments by accessing the CASPER system and requesting a MDS 3.0 Resident Roster or a MDS 3.0 Missing Assessment Report.  If you need assistance accessing or interpreting these reports, please contact the State MDS Unit at 573-751-6308, joan.brundick@health.mo.gov or 573-522-8421, denise.mueller@health.mo.gov.
