I am going over the wall....

  1. 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.

    No, I needed out of it all.

    I made a good choice.

    I follow some 'groups' and see the problems continue out there and interact with people in the 'trenches' everyday.

    It was never only a 'boss' issue.
