I have 2 official days left as an MDS nurse.
I have been in this game since 1999.
I am so tired of it.
The MDS and its processes is not the problem.
The problem is all the ancillary 'bulloney' that comes with it.
I am weary of the powers that be not truly understanding the impact that the MDS has at all levels.
They short change, work around or think a warm body who can read instructions and do data entry along with stringing some sentences together can do the job.
I am so happy to be done.
I am going to the insurance review side.
I hope this new road in my career as a nurse brings feelings of doing something worthwhile and a sense of accomplishment that has withered away in the MDS world this last year.

I hope you enjoy your new career path. I am new to the MDS world and it has been interesting thus far. Very time consuming to say the least.
