Pennie this news is absolutely right...I took the MDS 3.0 training on Monday the 23 and Tuesday the 24th. From my experience on these two days it's going to be an adjustment...but has been along time in coming...Also my facility is implicating the icare plans. The MDS 3.0 starts on October the 1st...i'm surpised that you haven't been trained for this yet...But after a few days of them i'm sure they will be like a comfortable shoe that fits perfectly...

Pennie,

 

Yes, the substitute for the RAP is now the CAA. Depending on which software application you use, the CAA is a TOOOOONNNNN easier to use. In my comppany, the CAA supplies all of the options for the care plan and MDS decisions. The CAA also lets you give a longer narrative for the decision and some good identifying information for your decisions ( which makes it nice when there are conflicting items in other departments). Finally, it is written with less intensity on medical jargon and explanations.

 

 

Here comes the however.....If you have not heard about the glitches in the new MDS 3.0, there are several. I say thiis not to blame the government(or anyone else), but our IT provider had a particular glitch with the F section and the CAA data entry.

 

 

I say that because my whole explanation may be moot, once they iron out all of the bugs and (possibly) make changes to the actual format of the CAA. So for now at least, that is my story and I am stickin to it!

 

 

Hope this helps!
