Errata Document Issued for MDS 3.0 RAI Manual

The Virginia Health Care Association recently received a communication from Cil Bullard, RN, CPC, Virginia RAI/OASIS Coordinator with the Office of Licensure and Certification in regards to an errata document on the Nursing Home Quality Initiatives:

CMS has issued an errata document on the Nursing Home Quality Initiatives webpage: http://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Quality-Initiatives-Patient-Assessment-Instruments/NursingHomeQualityInits/MDS30RAIManual.html titled: “MDS3.0RAIManualv1.12R.Errata.”

This document is available in the Downloads section, and contains revisions to pages in Chapter 2 and Chapter 3, Section A of the MDS 3.0 RAI Manual v1.12R that clarify the meaning of entry/reentry and the coding for MDS items A1600, A1700, A1800, and A1900.
Changed manual pages are marked with the footer “October 2014 (R)” or “October 2014 (R2)” if the page was previously revised.

If you download and print the full MDS 3.0 RAI Manual (v1.12R), you will ALSO need to download and print the errata document. The errata document begins with a table that lists the identified revisions and the pages to which they have been applied. Following the table are the actual corrected replacement pages for insertion into the printed manual.

If you have an up-to-date hard copy of the manual, then just print the errata.
