An MDS coordinator (Minimal Data Set) is responsible for gathering information on a healthcare facility's current and future patients for future assessment, including physical and mental states. The MDS is gathered via the Resident Assessment Instrument (RAI) process, which assesses a residentís behavioral, psychological, clinical, nutritional, and physical strengths and needs to create an individualized cared plan that considers the resident holistically. The MDS Coordinator then works with nursing, PT, nutrition, etc., to ensure care plan guidelines for each resident are followed, and compliant with ethical standards and Medicare requirements. Key MDS Management in skilled nursing facilities is vital. May 7 was MDS Coordinator Day along with Nurses Week.
