CMS: deliver data — or else

Providers who miss staffing data submission deadlines could be sanctioned — and see their Five-Star Nursing Quality Ratings suffer — federal officials said.

Nursing home operators are required to submit Payroll-Based Journal staffing data for the July 1 to Sept. 30 period no later than Nov. 14. Failure to do so could bring serious consequences, officials with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services said on a SNF Open Door Forum call.
