MDS Coding Coordinator

Woods Park Care Centre

Returned from maternity leave to a newly created position in which the objective is to promote the physical and emotional well being of nursing facility residents. A Resident Assessment Instrument (RAI) is used to gather information from residents and their families during initial and periodic interviews. The MDS covers such areas as the patient's mood, behavior patterns, cognitive ability, and nutrition needs.

Information from these assessments helps nursing home caretakers formulate individualized care plans that include support from social services, dieticians, rehab specialists, and medical staff. MDS coordinators then implement and monitor these care plans to ensure their effectiveness. They must also make sure all strategies comply with Medicare requirements and ethical standards.
