M1350 is ‘no’ if there is no intervention at discharge

Question:We have a patient who was admitted to home care for dressing changes to a traumatic open wound. The wound healed and the patient was discharged.  For M1350 on discharge, since the wound is healed, should the question be answered  “No” because the wound is healed and no longer needs any intervention or “Yes”  because up to the time of DC, she did require interventions?

Lisa says: Answer yes only if the wound required intervention at discharge even if intervention was not done. If the wound didn’t require intervention at discharge , answer no.
