If you're thinking about managing your time under the MDS 3.0, consider that under the most recent draft of the MDS 3.0, several resident interviews must be completed within a three-day window based on the Assessment Reference Date (ARD).

According to the MDS 3.0 draft, four interviews must be completed the day before, the day after, or the day the ARD is set.

Make sure to schedule these interviews within the appropriate timeframe:

  • The Brief Interview for Mental Status (BIMS) in Section C, Cognitive Patterns
  • The PHQ-9 interview for Mood in Section D, Mood
  • Preferences for Customary Routines and Activities, Section F
  • Pain Assessment Interview, in Section J, Health Conditions
