John Gantons Countryside Care Center is looking for an MDS Nurse. Monday through Friday with “On Call” responsibilities.
The objective of MDS coordinators is to promote the physical and emotional well being of nursing facility residents. They use a Resident Assessment Instrument (RAI) to gather information from residents and their families during initial and periodic interviews. The MDS covers such areas as the patient’s mood, behavior patterns, cognitive ability, and nutrition needs.
Information from these assessments helps nursing home caretakers formulate individualized care plans that include support from social services, dieticians, rehab specialists, and medical staff. MDS coordinators then implement and monitor these care plans to ensure their effectiveness. They must also make sure all strategies comply with Medicare requirements and ethical standards.
