Keeping Current with PBJ: CMS Compliance and 5-Star Staffing Rating Analysis
CMS has long identified staffing as one of the vital components of a nursing home’s ability to provide quality care. Section 6106 of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires facilities to electronically submit direct care staffing information based on payroll and other auditable data. The data, when combined with census information, can then be used to report on the level of staff in each nursing home, as well as employee turnover and tenure, which can impact the quality of care delivered.
Keeping Current with PBJ: CMS Compliance and 5-Star Staffing Rating analysis will discuss any current news and updates regarding PBJ submissions and CMS publications, analyze the staffing rating within the Five-Star Quality Rating System, look at the staffing thresholds in the rating system, the use of agency staffing, and forecasting tools and review using comparative market analysis reports as well as using resident and staffing surveys to help improve overall Five-Star Quality Rating.
