Would love to hear from other RCM's that do MDS's in LTC. Want to know what all your other duties are besides the MDS's. There are some that are different and sometimes the RCM gets to do alot of the DNS job duties.....just curious what yours are?
I wonder if there is a character limit on this site as I may quickly meet it listing my duties! I am an LVN MDS Coordinator in a 36 bed skilled facility. We run an average of 6 medicares at any given time. I am also the DSD, Assistant Administrator, Assistant DON, and have recently picked up some of the tasks of the Business Office Manager. Here are my list of Duties...
