These audits occur generally five days after an admission (not too early/not too late). The goal is to capture the completion of assessments, care plans, accuracy in medication reconciliation, and orders from the hospital. Depending on the findings, an opportunity for correction via late-entry documentation can occur to help ensure a clean claim. Download the Admission Audit.
