1MDS 3.0 Implications for Recreational Therapy Presented byLinda L. Buettner, PhD, LRT, CTRS, FGSAUniversity of NC at Greensboro
2GoalsParticipants will be able to: 1) Verbalize the changes in MDS 3.0 that impact on resident care and QOL, 2) Identify five clinical areas on the MDS 3.0 with major revisions and describe roles for recreational therapy, 3) Detail assessment and interview techniques and documentation opportunities for RT beginning in October 2010 with MDS 3.0.
3History of the MDS1986- IOM release report on quality of care in nursing homes1987- OBRA ‘87 was passed, requiring complete assessment1991- First MDS was introduced1997- MDS 2.0 was introduced2003- CMS contracts for revising to MDS 3.02007- CMS announces implementation planOctober Implementation of MDS 3.0The MDS 3.0 was validated and tested in 71 community nursing homes in 8 states with 3822 residents and 19 VA nursing homes with 764 residents.
4Goals of the MDS 3.0 Improve clinical relevance and accuracy Increase resident voiceImprove user satisfactionIncrease efficiency of reportsMaintain program ability of CMS
5Benefits of the MDS 3.0 Larger font Fewer items per page Definitions printed directly on formIncreased accuracyIncreased clarity of questionsGives resident a voice through interviewsListens to resident concernsReduced completion time by 45%
6Assessment TimingFor OBRA-required assessments, regulatory requirements for each assessment type dictate assessment timing, the schedule for which is established with the Admission (comprehensive) assessment when the ARD is set by the RN assessment coordinator and the Interdisciplinary team (IDT).Assuming the resident did not experience a significant change in status, was not discharged, and did not have a Significant Correction to Prior Comprehensive assessment (SCPA) completed, assessment scheduling would then move through a cycle of three Quarterly assessments followed by an Annual (comprehensive) assessment.
7Sections with Major Revisions Cognitive/ DeliriumMoodBehaviorCustomary Routine & ActivitiesPain AssessmentPlus RT is now in Section O.
8Section C. Cognitive Patterns (2 parts) Brief Interview for Mental Status (BIMS)Repetition of three wordsTemporal orientation: year, month, dayRecallStaff Assessment for Mental StatusCAM- deliriumInattentionDisorganized thinkingAltered level of consciousnessPsychomotor retardation
12Mood- PHQ-9 Little interest or pleasure in doing things Feeling down, depressed, or hopelessTrouble falling or staying asleep, or sleeping too muchFeeling tired or having little energyPoor appetite or overeatingFeeling bad about yourself- or that you are a failure or have let yourself or your family downTrouble concentrating on things such as reading the newspaper or watching televisionMoving or speaking so slowly that other people could have noticed. Or the opposite- being so fidgety or restless that you have been moving around a lot more than usualThoughts that you would be better off dead or of hurting yourself in some way
15Behavioral Symptoms Behavioral Symptoms Impact on resident Physical behavioral symptoms directed towards othersVerbal behavioral symptoms directed towards othersOther behavioral symptoms not directed towards othersImpact on residentImpact on othersWanderingPresence & Frequency
19Customary Routine and Activities New interview questions replace 20 Customary Routine staff assessment items for residents who can be interviewed.• Current importance rating replaces “check all that apply in the past year.”• New interview for activities preference replaces12 staff assessment items for residents who can be interviewed.
20Customary Routines and Activities (continued) • New question on whether the resident wants to talk about returning to the community.• Staff Assessment of Activity and Daily Preferences is completed only for residents who cannot complete interview.There are major changes to several items, and staff are instructed to observe resident response during exposure to activity.
23The Interview for Section F. Can resident “Make self Understood”?Does resident need an interpreter?Code 0, no Code 1, yes
24This is what you say:I’d like to ask you a few questions about your daily activities. The reason I am asking you these questions is that the staff here would like to know what’s important to you. This helps us plan your care around your preferences. We want to make your stay as personal as possible”
25What you say next:I am going to ask you how important various activities and routines are to you while you are in this home. I will ask you to answer using the choices you see on this card”READ the choices
26Tips Code 9, no response or non-responsive If 3 nonsensical responses STOP
27Let’s practiceQ. How important is it to you to choose what clothes to wear?A. “It’s very important. I’ve always paid attention to my appearance”How would you code this?Coded 1, very important
28New resident – same question “I leave that up to the nurse. You have to wear what you can handle if you have a stiff leg”You probe: “you leave it up to the nurses” would you say that, while you are here, choosing what clothes to wear is [pointing to cue card] ……A. “Well it would be important to me but I just can’t do it”Code it - 5
29How important is it to you to take care of your personal belongings or things? A. “It is somewhat important. I’m not a perfectionist, but I don’t want to have to look for things”.Coding? 2, somewhat importantAnother A. “All my nice things are at home”Clarify “your most treasured things are at home. Do you have other things here that are important to take care of?”A. My son gave me this CD player. It is very important to me.Code-1, very important
30Then go on to Activity Preferences How important is it to you to have books, newspapers, and magazines to read?How important is it to you to listen to music you like?How important is it to you to be around animals such as pets?Same coding

36Falls Fall History on Admission One or more times in month prior to admissionOne or more times in last 1-6 months prior to admissionFracture related to fall in last 6 monthsFalls since Admission or Prior AssessmentNumber of FallsNo injuryInjury (except major)Major Injury
37Potential Interventions Air Mat Therapy*Relaxation Based*Walking programs*Exercise programs*Multi-level RT Falls Prevention*Horticulture therapy- elevated gardens*Evidence-based interventions
38Pain Assessment Treatment Items have been added. Resident interview replaces staff observations for residents who can report pain symptoms.Section has been added to capture the effect of pain on sleep and day-to-day activities.Staff assessment of pain has been changed to an observational checklist of pain behaviors and is completed only for those residents that cannot self-report.
41Pain Management Scheduled pain management PRN pain management Non-medication intervention for painPain Assessment InterviewAny pain during the last 7 daysAmount of time pain was experiencedHard to sleep at nightLimited day-to-day activities
44Other Areas for Possible RT Treatment Nutritional- weight lossTherapeutic Cooking ProgramsMedications- psychotropic medicationsPrograms to decrease disturbing behaviorsRestraintsFall reduction programsInterventions to improve gait and balanceNursing Rehabilitation/ Restorative CareReturn to CommunityCommunity Reintegration Programs
50Requirements for RT Treatment: This just doesn’t happen!
51CMS Definition“Therapy ordered by a physician that provides therapeutic stimulation beyond the general activity program in a facility and physician ordered services which must include the frequency, duration, and scope of treatment.”-CMSMDS 3.0 RAI Manual
52CMS Requirements Reasonable expectation for improvement Treatment services designed to restore, rehabilitate, or remediate to improve functioning and independence as well as to reduce or eliminate the effects of illness or disability (ATRA)Limited group size (1:4)Must be provided by CTRSPhysician-ordered treatmentScope of treatmentFrequencyDuration
53RT Process Receive referral Obtain physician’s order for evaluation Assess client using valid, reliable toolsObtain physician’s order for treatmentEstablish care planImplement treatment planTreatment notesRe-evaluate using same form as assessmentContinue, D/C, or revise the care plan as needed.
54Sample OrderPhysician’s Order: RT: Aquatic exercise 45 minutes qday 2 x qweek for 6 weeks for increased endurance and reduction of pain symptoms.
55Care PlanEXAMPLE: I will walk 50’ daily with the help of one NA the next 30 days in order to maintain continence and eat in the dining room.Subject Mr. Jones OR IVerb will walkModifiers fifty feet daily with the help of one nursing assistantTime frame the next 30 daysGoal in order to maintain continence and eat in the dining area
56Documentation Develop flow sheet to monitor progress during session Develop progress note form to help with consistencyDevelop a decision tree for: continuation of treatment, modification of treatment, or discharge.If an intervention is NOT given document why.
57Recreation Therapy Progress Note: Aquatic exercise Date:__________Time:___________Mobility/Endurance: Check all behaviors that apply______Patient performs walking exercises in shallow water pool for ____minutes before rest______Patient uses floatation device to tread water for 3-5 minutes______Patient verbalizes awareness of decrease in pain. Pre pain____Post pain__________Patient ambulates to/from locker room x____feet with_______assistive deviceSocial Interactions: Check all behaviors that apply______Patient initiates greeting to therapist and other patients______Patient initiates conversation with questions with other patients during rest______Patient verbalizes desire to meet outside of pool session with other patients______Patient demonstrates bright/flat/depressed/guarded/labile/lethargic/sad/tearful/anxious affectTherapy Participation: Check all behaviors that apply______Patient participates for ______minutes without prompting______Patient attends session with limited participation______Patient refused to participate/did not complete session______Patient is disruptive to the session
58Check Your Understanding On the next slide you will find an example scenario of how a recreation therapist would utilize the MDS 3.0 to come up with a treatment plan.Following that you will be given 3 scenarios for which you will: a) write the RT order. b) propose an intervention. c) write the care plan goal, d) propose an evaluation method.
59Example (Delirium Section C 1300) Scenario: Mr. Jones is a new admission to the post-acute care unit of your nursing home. He was treated for a hip fracture and was started on hospital based rehabilitation before being discharged to your facility. In his MDS interview it became clear Mr. Jones had delirium and poor concentration.Inattention and disorganized thinking each scored a “2” indicating delirium.You get a request for RT treatment for mentally stimulating activities from the physician in your facility.
60Example (continued)RT order: RT for poor concentration 2x per day for 5 days.Proposed RT intervention: Use brief interactive cognitive activities twice per day until delirium symptoms improve.Evidence: (Fitzsimmons (2008) Brain Fitness, Venture Publishing and Instituting Cognitive Rehabilitation in Post-Acute Care VOLUME: 16 PUBLICATION DATE: Feb )Plan: Mr. Jones will focus on each cognitive activity for 30 seconds with cuing from RT twice each day for 5 days to increase concentration.Proposed evaluation: re-interview using MDS CAM questions (Section C.1300) daily. Note time engaged and attention on task during each RT session. Note in chart daily until resolved.
61Test Yourself (Section D) Scenario: Ms. Fang is a new admission to your nursing home from her home of 60 years within the local community. She recently took a fall that caused a fractured humerous and because of that her family decided nursing home placement was best for her at this stage in her life. MDS 3.0 coded her as a person with moderate depression.You get an order from the physician in your facility for RT treatment as a means to decrease depressive symptoms.What does the RT order look like for Ms. Fang?What is your proposed RT intervention for Ms. Fang? (with evidence to support this)What is your plan?What is your proposed evaluation plan for Ms. Fang?
62Test Yourself (Section E) Scenario: Mr. Jenkins is a resident on the dementia care unit of your nursing home who exhibits daily behaviors of rummaging. MDS 3.0 codes him as an individual with behavioral symptoms not directed toward others but his behavior significantly invades the privacy and activity of others. The nurse manager requests an RT referral.You get an order from the physician in your facility for RT treatment as a means to decrease rummaging behavior.What does the RT order look like for Mr. Jenkins?What is your proposed RT intervention for Mr. Jenkins? (with evidence to support this)What is your proposed evaluation plan for Mr. Jenkins?
63Test Yourself (Section G) Scenario: Ms. Smith is a new resident on the rehabilitation unit of your nursing home. She is currently recovering from the effects of a CVA that left her with decreased upper extremity range of motion on the right side. She is not motivated in PT or OT.You get a request from the physician in your facility for RT treatment as a means to increase range of motion in the upper extremities.What does the RT order look like for Ms. Smith?What is your proposed RT intervention for Ms. Smith? (with evidence to support this)What is your proposed evaluation plan for Ms. Smith?
64Working case 1:Mr. Beefit, 80, is a skilled nursing home patient, who is admitted to the hospital with a new acute cardiac condition. He stays 7 days and is returned to the post-acute rehab unit with de- conditioning and depression. Lifestyle: outdoorsman.Which section of the MDS would help you find his other active diseases?Where would you find his mood symptoms?
66Working case 2:Mrs. Right., 85, is recovering in your post- acute care wing from a CVA and left hemiparesis. She also has a history of cognitive impairment. Lifestyle: Childcare and pets as passions in retirement. Former teacher.What section of the MDS would provide you with cognition details you will need for your RT intervention planning?
68Working case 3:Mr. P., 72, was transferred to your unit after a 14 day inpatient psychiatric stay. He has chronic PTSD and moderate dementia; has given up on his ADLs but is belligerent with care providers. He was referred to RT for behavioral interventions. Lifestyle: life long military mechanic, divorced, wants to live in community.Where would you find details on behaviors?Which section of the MDS would provide you with his function in the area of continence?Which section of the MDS provides community preference information?
70Working case 4:Mrs. Hippie, 89, a long time resident from Mississippi has returned from the hospital after a hip replacement and is moaning and reporting little people walking on her ceiling overhead.What two sections of the MDS should you review as they most probably have changed?
