How Many MDS Assessments Per Month

  1. I'm curious to know how many PPS MDS evals (all combined) everyone else submits per month. I'm trying to figure out if I am on track, or if I need to speed up. I am at a hospital based SNF -not swing bed, with 20 Medicare beds with an average length of stay of 13.7 days. I feel swamped, but don't have any other past facilities to compare with.

    Not sure how many per month, but..... in the last year my MDS department has transmitted 2,135 records ranging from the 6 page entry to 140+ page new admits/CAAS.

    I do all the medicare MDSs in the building and today my medicare census is 21. The facility has 154 beds so I also do about 30 long term care MDSs. I attend daily PPS, care plan meetings 2x weekly and several other weekly meetings and other jobs as well regarding management of medicare boards that the regional team views daily. I complete on average 50-70 medicare MDSs a month, that isn't including the long term care which would only add about 12-15 more MDSs. All of the Medicare are new admits soI follow them until they go home so I do their CAAs, and their care plans as well then their discharge assessments.

    The census at our facility typically runs in the mid-80's. Before the advent of the ever-so-lovely COTs, I typically completed 62-72 MDS assessments a month. Now, it is typically in the mid-80's (not counting entry trackers)

    My facility submits on average 150 per month; this includes PPS & OBRA's.
