CMS Releases Updated MDS 3.0 RAI User's Manual

The new updated MDS 3.0 RAI Manual and sample Item Sets, V1.09, effective November 7, 2012 can be downloaded from the CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) site here.  If you download the 'All Change Tables and Pages for Version 1.09', the changes are highlighted beginning on appoximately page 134 of the document.  As with any update, it's always a good reminder for Social Service and Activities staff to review their MDS/CAA/CP procedure.  Do you have an efficient process for completing your sections in a timely manner?  For Indiana staff, are you giving specific examples for behavioral symptoms?  Are you capturing relevant signs/symptoms of delirium?  Do you compare the current BIMS/PHQ-9 score to the previous score to track improvement/decline?  Are you utilizing the information gathered from the resident interviews to establish realistic care plan goals and interventions?  As always, if your department or facility needs assistance with the RAI process, contact SHC and we'll schedule a visit to help continue improving Quality of Life services.

The severity of adverse effects ranges from nausea to death. Common adverse effects include alteration in body weight, change in enzyme levels, loss of function, or pathological change detected at the microscopic, macroscopic or physiological level. Thanks.

Pages on the NIMH website are not usually credited to specific authors. In this case, you should list the name of the organization as the author, followed by a period. For example. Thanks.
