Q: Regarding the COT count: Is it correct that once a rehab RUG is no longer achieved that the 7 day COT count stops and does not begin again until 7 days following the next scheduled PPS Assessment. I was just told in a seminar on the new PPS Final Rule that the above is true, and that in the new OCT 2014 Final Rule this will be changed so that the COT count will not stop when a Rehab RUG is no longer achieved.
