Daily we have a brief PPS for Medicare, but it's usually just the rehab manager and myself to make sure all the Med A patients are getting the minutes that were scheduled. Also, someone from my department goes to stand-up daily.
Once a week we have an IDT meeting where we discuss the skilled need and the progress. We do this for Med A and managed care, and the facility would like me to include the Med B's as well, but I am reviewing 40 patients a week as it is, and that meeting is almost two hours.
We have care conferences for the new skilled admits every week, family meeting with the IDT, and depending on how many admits that usually runs two hours as well. There is a weekly "triple check" with business office and the administrator and the rehab manager.
Monthly, I attend QA. I cannot attend falls, weights and skins, restraints, safety committee, employee retention, or any of the other meetings...220 beds and two coordinators, usually at least 40 skilled patients, some of which are managed care and require endless faxing and phone calls. There is too much! And then any other manager meetings, I split with the other MDS coordinator, as he is well aware of what we need to know, and can get the info. You have to set limits on the meetings you are required to attend. Good Adminstrators and DON's get that, but the one's who don't know what you do can be a pain.
