MDS Completion Frequently Asked Questions
Learn more what to expect with MDS Completion services:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
