CMS announced the new version (v1.14.1) of the MDS 3.0 is scheduled to become effective October 1, 2016.

A new section GG has been added to the MDS. These item sets are required for Medicare Part A residents at admission and discharge to establish and assess functional abilities and goals.

LTCS Books publications are now all current with the MDS v1.14.1 and with all of the latest RAI Manual updates, Surveyor Guidelines, and federal regulatory changes.
