Tips for the PBJ Pro: Are you ready for staff turnover reporting?

CMS kicked off the new year with more PBJ reporting disclosures. In a letter released January 7, CMS announced that it will begin posting new PBJ metrics to the Care Compare website:

  • Weekend staffing — the level of total nurse and registered nurse (RN) staffing on weekends over a quarter
  • Staff turnover — the percent of nursing staff and number of administrators that stopped working at the nursing home over a 12-month period
  • Detailed staffing data — employee-level staffing data

These additions are not unexpected after several high-profile reports published last year. However, news that CMS would immediately begin posting this data to the Care Compare website in January 2022 — and incorporate the measures into the Five-Star Staffing rating in July 2022 — caught many by surprise.
