HI ..... in a nutshell, what is an MDS nurse? I know it involves LTC, and is an administrative position, but what are the daily tasks like? I saw an add that attracts me, and am open to a non traditional nurse job anyday, but just want to get the scoop from you guys here!!! It is only 16 hours a week, just what I need right now.
I did this for about 5 years. We also had to take "call" where we would have to cover the hall nurses if they called in sick. We also had to do various other, non MDS related, task like scheduling. Other than that nascar nurse explained it really well. It is a very important job in the LTC facilty as you are responsibe for all payment from medicare/medicaid. Although, managment usually doesn't understand this.
