Denver MDS Training!

The time is upon us once more! Minimum Data Set (MDS) 3.0 training will be held in Denver on July 17th and 18th at the First Plymouth Church at Hampden and Colorado Blvd. We will again review the MDS 3.0 with emphasis on the Resident, and also delve deeper into the intricacies of the tool. We will also be talking more in-depth about quality measures, evacuations and Care Plans along with any new directives from CMS. Training will be provided to the MDS coordinators all day Wednesday and Thursday. Training for the IDT members will be included on Thursday. This change in format should allow us more time to discuss the finer points and to answer questions.

The room will be open 7:30AM to 4:30PM both days. NHAs and DONs are welcome at any time.

Training for CNAs and SDCs will be provided at LTC Facilities at their convenience and by their invitation.

Food and beverages will not be provided. Please bring your own.

Registration is now open on our website. You can view the website by clicking here.When registering please use an e-mail address that you have easy access to as I will be sending you the Power Points for you to copy and bring to the training.

I am also providing a MDS 3.0 Training for those that are brand new to the tool and process. The first offering will be on August 20th and 21st at The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment in building C, room C1D. You may sign up for this training at the same place as above. Again, no food or drinks will be provided, but you may certainly bring your own.

Remember, EVACUATIONS are real! Do not discharge your residents from the MDS system if you are the evacuating facility. Also, do not enter the new residents if you are the receiving facility.

Any Questions? Call Phyllis Brighton at 303-692-2894.
