    So far when we have a new admission Medicare Part A, we focus on three things: 1/Add the primary DX by day 3 of the admission. 2/ Check if patient received fluids at the hospital and set the ARD 3 days early to be able to code the IV fluid given at the hospital. 3/ Complete section GG no later than the 3rd day from admission. Do you look at other things on the first day you receive a new admission? What do you look for in a patient to capture ? I am trying to make a sense of it, I am going back and forth RAI manual, I am getting more confused. I have been told I am rushing it, everything will come with time. Really?? its been 4 months and I am still not satisfied with the way I am approaching the change. I have been in MDS over 5 years and I am feeling as if I started MDS today? Any advice would be appreciated.

    I really appreciate all your advices, and I am very familiar with Talino and I agree he is always a big help with MDS questions.

    MDS interview

    I am an MDS RN/coordinator, and I have an interview coming soon for a new position as an MDS in another facility with 80 beds. I am concerned since I am going to be by myself, I have been told they are not going to provide any training since I have been working as an MDS coordinator for over 5 years. I love the facility, however I've always worked under a good mentor. What questions should I ask before taking this position?

    GG/discharge functional performance

    Hello MDS experts. Are there any websites to understand the new QMS looking at admission performance and discharge performance? I believe we have to meet one of the goals. Which of the few new QMS are based on admission performance and discharge performance? For the QMS I thought that we need improvement at the discharge on one of these: locomotion transfer and walking. Thank you!
