CMS’ research has shown that one quarter to one third of Residents will have a decrease or resolution of incontinence in response to a toileting program.
As a completely new assessment process, MDS 3.0 contains numerous differences over the MDS 2.0. Featuring a more in-depth process, the new MDS 3.0 requires a greater time commitment for staff members to complete, with the goal to help Residents maintain their quality of life.
When working with incontinence care, the MDS 3.0 implementation process presents long term care professionals both challenges and opportunities for success. The areas of assessment and documentation are most affected, with the overall expectation being that the highest level of continence status be achieved for each Resident as part of their Individualized Plan of Care. To reach these goals, education and training of staff will be critical, supported by simple and time-saving tools.
