My mother had a 2-week hospital stay, went to a SNF for 10 days, returned to the hospital for 5 days due to critically low sodium level caused by a new medication given at the SNF, and now is back at SNF. Should her 20 days of coverage for the SNF restart after the 2nd hospital stay?

No, the benefit period doesn't restart until patient has been out of hospital for 60 days and not readmitted. Found that on medicare.gov.
