SNF question

Good morning-

If a current SNF resident comes to the Ed and is placed in OBS, how does that affect the hospitalization period?
I've read the manual but not clear to me.

Is there another place better to reference?

"If an individual who is receiving covered post-hospital extended care, leaves a SNF and is readmitted to the same or any other participating SNF for further covered care within 30 days of the last covered skilled day, the 30-day transfer requirement is considered to be met. The same is true if the beneficiary remains in the SNF to receive custodial care following a covered stay, and subsequently develops a renewed need for covered care there within 30 consecutive days. Thus, the period of extended care services may be interrupted briefly and then resumed, if necessary, without hospitalization preceding the resumption of SNF coverage. (See
