Acute (AKI) and 2728 Forms

Modified on Tue, 31 Oct 2023 at 10:21 AM

Created 10/30/2023

Patients diagnosed as Acute (AKI): 

  • should not be entered into EQRS
  • do not need 2728 Forms

If an Acute patient is accidentally entered into EQRS:

  1. Discharge as Acute
  2. Delete the 2728 Form

If Acute patient becomes ESRD:

  • Admit as 'New ESRD' on the Date they started treatment as an ESRD patient.
  • Complete the 2728 Form using the CORRECT DATES::
    • DO use the first treatment date after the MD diagnoses patient as ESRD (end stage renal disease) and no longer Acute.
    • DO NOT use the date the patient started treatment for AKI as the “Date of First Chronic Dialysis.”
    • Do NOT use any Acute (AKI) data.

If the patient receives a kidney transplant, they are diagnosed as ESRD, NOT Acute (AKI).

For instructions on admitting a patient after a kidney transplant:
