Medicare Fundamentals Part 7: Skilled Medicare Documentation On-Demand Workshop
The goal of SNF documentation is to ensure that residents receive proper care to promote the highest practicable level of well-being through clear written communication, to validate a facility’s decisions for or against care and treatment, to prove the need for daily skilled care to support claims and to comply with federal regulatory requirements. Following Medicare Fundamentals Part 7: Skilled Medicare Documentation, you will understand both basic and skilled documentation requirements. This session also includes examples of notes that reflect skilled care versus task completion, as well as the supportive documentation of other members of the IDT.
