-3678 Format Fatal Formatting of Birthdate:
This item must contain either (a) a valid date in YYYYMMDD, YYYYMM, or YYYY format, or (b) one of the special values (if any) that are listed in the "Item Values" table of the Detailed Data Specifications Report.

Note that if a date in YYYYMMDD format is submitted, it must be 8 characters in length and each of the 8 characters must contain the digits 0 (zero) through 9. YYYY, MM, and DD must be zero filled, where necessary. For example, January 1, 1909 must be submitted as "19090101".

If a date is submitted in YYYYMM format, it must be 6 characters in length and each of the 6 characters must contain the digits 0 (zero) through 9. YYYY and MM must be zero filled, where necessary. For example, January, 1909 must be submitted as "190901".

If a date is submitted in YYYY format, it must be 4 characters in length and each of the 4 characters must contain the digits 0 (zero) through 9. YYYY must be zero filled, where necessary. For example, 1909 must be submitted as "1909".
-3659 Consistency Fatal A0900 (birthdate) cannot be more than 140 years earlier than the current date.
-3778 Consistency Fatal Completion of A1550A through A1550Z.

a) If A0310A is equal to [02,06,99], then A1550A through A1550Z must equal [^].
b) If the resident's age is 22 years of age or older and A0310A is equal to [01], then A1550A through A1550Z must not equal [^].
c) If the resident's age is 22 years of age or older and A0310A is not equal to [01], then A1550A through A1550Z must equal [^].
d) If the resident's age is 21 years of age or younger and A0310A is equal to [01,03,04,05], then A1550A through A1550Z must not equal [^].

For the rules above, age should be computed in the following way using A0900 (birth date) and A2300 (assessment reference date):

a) If only the year is submitted in A0900, then replace the month and day with "0702" (July 2, the midpoint of the year) for the purpose of calculating age.
b) If only the year and month are submitted in A0900, replace the day with "15", (the midpoint of the month) for the purpose of calculating age.
c) Provisionally compute age (in years) by subtracting the year in A0900 (as modified above, if necessary) from the year in A2300.
d) If the month in A2300 is less than the month in A0900, then subtract 1 from the provisional age computed in (c) above.
e) If the month in A2300 is equal to the month in A0900 and if the day in A2300 is less than the day in A0900, then subtract 1 from the provisional age
computed in (c) above.
-3851 Consistency Fatal Date Item Consistency Rules
Date items fall into four groups, designated Group A, B, C, and D below. Each group has its own consistency rules.

------------------------------------------

GROUP A RULES (Edit 3851a)
Group A items are listed below. Each active item in this list that contains a valid date (not blank or dashes) must be in the specified order:

A0900 (birthdate) <=
A1900 (admission date) <=
A1600 (entry date) <=
A2300 (assessment reference date) = A2000 (discharge date) <=
Z0500B (date RN signed assessment as complete) <=
V0200B2 (CAT assessment process signature date) <=
V0200C2 (CAT care planning signature date) <=
X1100E (correction: attestation date) <=
current date

------------------------------------------

GROUP B (Edit 3851b)

Group B items are listed below. Each active item in this list that contains a valid date (not blank or dashes) must obey all of the following rules:

1. Each Group B date must be greater than or equal to A0900 (birthdate).
2. Each Group B date must be less than or equal to A2300 (assessment reference date) if A2300 is active.
3. If A0310F is equal to [10,11,12] (if A2000 discharge date is completed), then each Group B date must be less than or equal to A2000.
4. For start/end date pairs shown below, the start date must be less than or equal to the end date.
5. Otherwise, the Group B dates may be in any order.

The following is a list of Group B dates:
A2400B <= A2400C (Medicare stay start/end)
M0300B3 (date of oldest Stage 2 pressure ulcer)
O0250B (date influenza vaccine received)
O0400A5 <= O0400A6 (speech-language audiology therapy start/end)
O0400B5 <= O0400B6 (occupational therapy start/end)
O0400C5 <= O0400C6 (physical therapy start/end)
V0100C (prior assessment reference date)

------------------------------------------

GROUP C RULES
The Group C rules only apply to records where A0310A = [05, 06] (significant correction to prior comprehensive or quarterly).

RULE C1 (Edit 3851c1)
If A0310A = [05, 06] and A1700=[1] (admission), then Rule C1 applies:
A1600 (entry date) <=
A2200 (previous ARD for significant correction)<=
A2300 (assessment reference date)

RULE C2: (Edit -3851c2)
If A0310A = [05, 06] and A1700=[2] (reentry), then Rule C2 applies:
A0900 (birthdate) <=
A2200 (previous ARD for significant correction) <=
A2300 (assessment reference date)

------------------------------------------

GROUP D (Edit 3851d)

The Group D items include the following:

O0400A5, O0400B5, and O0400C5 (therapy start dates)
O0400A6, O0400B6, and O0400C6 (therapy end dates)

If any of these 6 items contains a valid date (not [-,^,--------]), then each of those dates must be greater than or equal to A1600 (entry date).
