MDS 3.0 Data Collection Tool?


Does anyone have a really really good mds 3.0 data collection tool that they made? I am trying to make a good one in the right order as I am writing this, but realize I suck at making things like this! LOL If anyone wants to share my E-mail is e.kuster@aol.com.

I make copies of blank MDS relevant items for each discipline such as b-e for social services, k for dietary, etc and hand them out to the individual who will do the assessments after indicating the ARD on the forms. Thsn I have a cheat sheet I use for infor from the computer. I could send it to you, if you give me your email addy.
