Frequently Asked Questions

Learn what to expect when you work with with MDS Consultants.

How quickly will you start working after we get signed up?

Once you provide us with access to your Electronic Medical Record, we typically begin completing MDS Assessments within 24-48 hours after getting access to your system.

How long have you been completing MDS assessments?

MDS Consultants began completing MDS assessments in 2006. Gloria Brent - our founder - did all the assessment until the service gained in popularity and she hired staff to help with MDS completion.  

Is your staff comprised of independent contractors or employees?

The nurses who complete MDS assessments are 100% employees of MDS Consultants.  All staff must complete our in-house training program before working with our clients.  Even the highest credentialed employees are required to complete our training program before working with customers.

To maintain the highest standards of quality, we employ a Compliance officer who completes random internal audits on all of our staff work - regardless of how long they have worked for us.

If we hired a MDS Coordinator to take over from your staff - will you help with training or auditing their work so we know we have the “right” person?

Yes.  MDS Consultants provides 1:1 remote training of new employees you bring in to be your new MDS Coordinator.  We can train the new MDS Coordinator and decrease our MDS completion time as they become more speedy and efficient over time. 

Will you audit your person(s) working on our site?

Yes, we provide MDS Data Integrity Audits.  We suggest that 2 MDS Data Integrity Audits should be completed initially to see if the individual working on MDS completion needs further training.  This audit provides a non-MDS professional with clear information to help them understand if their staff member is on the right track or requires more training.

Does MDS Consultants provide MDS 3.0 Certification Training?

Yes, MDS Consultants is a Training Partner with AAPACN (formerly AANAC and AADNS).  We provide Certification and Advanced Certification programs throughout the United States.  If you would like to know when we will be in your area, please go to our events page here:
