Forgive my poor understanding. I was just reading the document of
MDS. Although every words can be recognized by myself. But when they combine together ,I totally had no idea about what does it mean. Please help to review it .Thanks.
discharge: to allow (someone) to leave a hospital, prison, etc. anticipate:to think of (something that will or might happen in the future)
When a resident is discharged return anticipated and the resident returns to the facility within 30 days, the facility must copy the previous RAI and transfer that copy to the new record. The15-month requirement for maintenance of the RAI data must be adhered to.
note: RAI means Resident Assessment Instruments in the MDS 3.0. Thanks.
I agree with Andrew's answer.
The original document explain some for these words in the following chapter.Thanks.
Discharge refers to the date a resident leaves the facility. A day begins at 12:00 a.m. and ends at 11:59 p.m. Regardless of whether discharge occurs at 12:00 a.m. or 11:59 p.m., this date is considered the actual date of discharge. There are two types of discharges – return anticipated and return not anticipated. A Discharge assessment is required with both types of discharges. Section 2.6 provides detailed instructions regarding both discharge types.
