The session will focus on best practices for decreasing unplanned discharges, emergency room visits, and return to hospital visits in short-term stay residents and improve your quality measures using a QAPI framework with emphasis on reduction of common MDS coding errors and implementation of a facility specific Five Star road map action plan.
