This one-day workshop will begin with how to gain access to and read the MDS reports from CASPER in order to self-audit your RAI process.  The completion of the MDS is becoming more and more difficult and confusing.  This workshop will help the MDS coordinator and other members of the interdisciplinary team to understand the admitting criteria and the ongoing documentation needs of the Medicare resident.  The RAI process in relationship to Medicare is also confusing and errors can be a financial nightmare for facilities.  This workshop will help clear up the confusion surrounding this process.
