A Day in the Life as a Minimum Data Set (MDS) Coordinator

As an MDS Coordinator, you arrive each day determined to ensure that the residents' physical, mental, and emotional needs are truly met, while also ensuring that the federally-mandated process for clinical assessments is properly followed for each resident. You continuously monitor, evaluate, and manage the care given. You oversee the timely and accurate completion, editing, locking, and transmission of all MDS assessments. Due to your excellent and in-depth knowledge of the MDS process and your heart for and understanding of the people we serve, you are able to balance regulatory compliance with meeting the real needs of real people.

You perform the initial interview and assess each new resident. You complete the MDS assessment based on your direct observations, review of their patient records, use of a data collection worksheet, interdisciplinary team data, and interviews with residents, families, and staff. From this assessment and evaluation, you develop a care plan that has long-term and short-term goals for improvement. You conduct meetings with the multidisciplinary treatment team, caretakers, and families to discuss these goals. Sometimes, you also reach out to specialists within the community to get help in achieving care plan goals.

You help develop the MDS completion schedule, setting the assessment reference dates, and care conference dates. You prepare and electronically transmit timely reports to the national Medicare and Medicaid database. Your attention to the accuracy of medical records and coding procedures is essential to the receipt of proper reimbursement and the ability of our facility to continue to operate and provide the highest quality of care to our residents. You are also an advocate of residents' rights and ensure that each resident and their family are aware of their legal rights.

You support the nursing staff in providing accurate assessments, care plans, and excellent quality of care. You provide direct observation and participate in resident care in order to monitor the residents' needs and staff interactions with the goal of increasing MDS coding accuracy.

You enjoy the variety of people you get to interact with each day, as well as the variety of tasks you perform. You work hard and feel good about the essential part you play in ensuring both the quality of life of our residents and the continued success of our care facility!
