Activities of Daily Living (ADL) Accuracy:
Clinical and Financial Impact
Coding of activities of daily living (ADLs) on the MDS is complex and often misunderstood by those engaged in completing the assessment. In addition to affecting care, public information and survey, this area of the MDS has a tremendous financial impact. During this session, the speaker will define the late loss ADLs and provide insights aimed at helping facility staff document resident status accurately. Calculating the ADL score for the RUG-IV system will be reviewed and implications of inappropriate coding will be demonstrated. Using dollar-impact case studies, the attendee will learn why this section is critical for the facility’s financial success.
