THE MDS 3.0
The results of interviews under MDS 3.0 determine the appropriate care plan and have a big impact on your reimbursement and survey results. Don’t take any chances with your facility’s reputation and bottom line. This handbook provides guidance on the various ways to conduct an interview and the different situations that may arise.
We know what the surveyors will ask under QIS.
THE QUALITY INDICATOR SURVEY
Surveyors will ask questions to 30% of your facility, including staff and residents. And since surveyors are being trained in the art of interviewing, shouldn’t your staff be? Give your staff members an upper hand in the process by exposing them to potential situations that may arise during a QIS interview.
