Write for the Right
Properly coordinated interdisciplinary documentation is the foundation of quality care and reimbursement, and the right to provide services. It is imperative that nursing and therapy documentation are coordinated, as poor documentation could result in loss of pertinent therapy services for the resident and reimbursement.
Premier’s therapists/management provide training and instruction in the Medicare requirements for documentation. We provide our TIPS Tool for Nursing: Therapy Intervention Program Support for Nursing that translates therapy documentation into MDS terminology. Ongoing interdisciplinary audit support with documentation is completed to reduce risk of denials and to ensure a team approach to quality patient care.
Trigger List in-service training is provided to a SNF staff to educate and raise awareness of those residents that are not at their maximum level of independence. Our goal is to work together with your nursing staff to ensure all residents receive the therapy services needed to maintain highest quality of life and independence.
