Well where I was from MDS stood for Minimum Data Set. http://www.cms.hhs.gov/NursingHomeQualityInits/20_NHQIMDS20.asp

Used as an assessment tool, it was probably about 6 pages of info on each patient usually in LTC to determine their care level. Like how many people if any it takes to preform ADL's how many meds they are on, if they've had falls etc in the last 3 months. A follow up is done every 3 months on every resident. My hospital trained me in this. I hope this helps you.
