Q: When any comprehensive MDS is done, do the care plan goals and intervention dates all have to be the same for each problem? When our team works on the care plan it is usually individually, although we do discuss the resident with each other. The care plan meetings have always been scheduled after the date for the completion of the care plan. Also, when the quarterly is done, we each review and update the goals prior to the care plan meeting and go over it there. Is it okay if the care plan goal dates and interventions dates are different but within a few days of each other?
