As we have discussed in many of our blog posts, it is imperative that long-term care facilities send their MDS Coordinators to formal training courses in order to maximize the efficiency and knowledge of the MDS Coordinator. MDS certification training courses serve two purposes: to train beginner MDS coordinators and to provide advanced training to coordinators who have been working in the field. MDS LTC Training and Consulting offers both types of training courses.
The problem with many in-house training programs is that the facilities do not specialize in MDS training, which often hinders the coordinator by training out of date procedures and methodology. This, in turn, affects patient care and reimbursement rates.
Paying to send your MDS coordinators to formal MDS certification training courses is a small price to pay to ensure proper patient care and federal compliance.
