Clarification Regarding 60 day Convalescent Stay Option
The 60 day convalescent stay option is for persons with major mental illness (MMI), mental retardation (MR), or related condition (RC). To use this option, the discharging provider must complete Level of Care and Level 1 screens and select 60 day convalescence on the Level 1 form. A signed physicians's attestation that the stay will likely be 60 days or less must be submitted. The admission to the NF can occur after an Ascend Nurse approves the decision.
