MDS Fall Training!


Fall is just about upon us, and therefore time for the fall festivities. The MDS trainings this season will be only one day long, and will focus on the upcoming changes to the MDS that will be effective October 1, 2014. We will also be looking again at those tough areas within the MDS, so be sure to let us know which are your "toughies". The Denver venue will be September 12th here at the Health Department. Grand Junction will be September 18th. For a different look at Northeast Colorado, we have changed the venue to Fort Morgan on October 2nd. The Pueblo venue remains the same and will be on October 7th. Please note, we have updated the process for registration below:

Registration (Detailed Instructions if Needed):1. Go to If you have an existing CO.TRAIN account Login, or new users click "Create an Account"3. Once you have logged in, or created an account, Search (top right) for Course ID: 10529924. Click link for "MDS 3.0 Training (One Day)"5. Click the "Registration" tab6. Click the "Register" button for the session you wish to attend

JUST A REMINDER...If you have both certified and non-certified beds in your facility, remember that any time a resident is transferred from a certified bed to a non-certified bed, a discharge MDS must be done. Likewise, any time a resident is transferred from a non-certified bed to a certified bed, an entry MDS must be done (not a reentry).

We look forward to seeing you all this fall! Feel free to contact Phyllis Brighton with your questions and or 303-692-2894
