I worked as a LPN MDs nurse and the coordinator scheduled our assessments and we completed them. I have since left that company became an RN. I took a floor position and they offered me an MDS position. i was scared but was promised to be trained. The girl that was supposed to train me has the most sever ADD i have ever seen and knowns her MDs so well that she talks above me. I have had this position since January and with several bumps in the road I have learned to schedule, change and coorect the skilled assessments. I now have another bump. The LPN who has always done th eLTC calendar is being demoted and I now need to learn case mix and take over scheduling. I know 3 QRTs and 1 annual a year. My last job the computer kept track of the assessments and printed them out. The company i know work for uses ECS and they use the calendar on outlook to keep track of these. i know there has to be a way that the computer program keeps track of this for me i just do not have time to fiddle around with it. I am the coordinator, I do the billing, I do admission orders and assessments,and I do the skilled calendar. We average between 15-22 admissions a week.
