The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) publishes the RAI 3.0 User’s Manual v1.16 as a public document which is available for duplication. The goal is to distribute information broadly to facilitate accurate and effective resident assessment practices in long-term care facilities.
The 3.0 manual v1.16 is available for print/download at the CMS website.
The 2018 MDS items sets (v1.16.1) are available on the CMS MDS 3.0 Technical Information webpage.
For questions, please contact Susan Belda at the MDS/OASIS State RAI Coordinator help desk by email at MDSOasis@cdph.ca.gov or by phone at (916) 324-2362.
Please distribute copies of this AFL to MDS Coordinators, Directors of Nursing, and Facility Administrators in your facility.
