It is common practice to combine the OBRA Admission Assessment with the PPS 5-Day or 14-Day Assessment when the time frames coincide for both required assessments. This is allowable to avoid unnecessary duplication of effort. In such cases, the most stringent requirement of the two assessments for MDS completion must be met. In addition, one assessment may satisfy two OBRA assessment requirements, such as and Admission and Discharge Assessment, or two PPS Assessments, such as a 30-Day Assessment and an End of Therapy OMRA.
