During the May 12th CMS Office Hours broadcast, CMS provided guidance for SNF therapists to include the time spent donning and doffing PPE in the MDS Section O minutes. Therapists should begin including this time in the total treatment time for each session. This topic is covered in the recorded podcast between time markers 3:02 and 3:54. The link below is to the recording and written transcript.
