For Sue and Zohar....
Now...on the note of whether or not I was kidding about the wage thing...I was DEAD serious! I took her statement very literally! But, thanks for clarifying it for me. :chuckle STILL...$15.00/HOUR is an insult to a professional nurse...no matter what country she works in.

Jun 24, '02Occupation: Associate Case Manager Specialty: 11 year(s) of experience in Hospice/Homehealth/Homecare ; Joined: Apr '02; Posts: 144; Likes: 37I'm confused--I was under the impression that MDS's had to be signed by RN's. When I was in long term care (about 5 years ago) I had to do my own MDS's for my unit as part of my charge position but they had to be either signed or co-signed by an RN to be valid. Has this changed or was is just where I worked.

I started at 9.60 at Children's hospital-LA in 95 needless to say I left in 9 months to find better pay. That is ridiculous there were clerk III's that made more and I had to deal with people's lives everyday! It is really when some RN's were making that too!
