Reminder: Nursing Home MDS Changes Take Effect Oct. 1st
The launch of the updated nursing home Minimum Data Set (MDS) 3.0 v1.18.11 is just around the corner on Oct. 1st.

CMS has released a number of minor updates to the item sets and User's Manual over the past several weeks, including an Errata Sheet for the Manual on Sept. 8th and updated Final MDS 3.0 Item Sets on Aug. 24th. These documents and others are available in the Downloads section of the CMS MDS webpage here.
