Q:   We have a resident that was discharged to the acute hospital, and due to payment issues, was formally discharged from our facility. We expect him to return within 30 days. Do we need to consider him as a return/anticipated and continue his schedule (even though he will have a new medical record) or can we just continue the OBRA schedule he was on prior to his discharge to acute care?
