Be MDS Confident

New resident assessment coordinators with fewer than six months experience and staff interested in the MDS process can take advantage of a new education program, MDS Essentials: An Introduction to the MDS 3.0—a 10-Session Virtual Workshop Series. The workshop moves through the Resident Assessment Instrument (RAI) User’s Manual, helping staff understand the intent, rationale, and coding requirements of each MDS item set, Care Area Assessments, care plans, and scheduling. The program will help the MDS coordinator perform his or her job duties skillfully and with confidence.

In Session 5, continue your journey through the MDS section-by-section as we explore the intent and rationale of each item.  This session will cover two MDS Sections (GG and K) and walk you through the nuances of the Section GG requirements.   This session will help you:

  • Understand the intent, rationale, steps for assessment, and basic coding instructions for each item
  • Review key definitions that are critical to understanding coding requirementsRecognize the differences between Section GG and Section G
  • Apply the calculation of weight loss and weight gain
