Section M: Skin Conditions (Pressure Ulcer/Injury)


Description: The Section M: Skin Conditions (Pressure Ulcer/Injury) webinar will give providers at Long-Term Care Hospitals and Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities information about changes impacting proper coding of Section M of the Continuity Assessment Record and Evaluation (CARE) Data Set Version 4.00 and the Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility-Patient Assessment Instrument (IRF-PAI) v. 2.00.
