How to Boost Your Nursing Home Star Rating

Administrators and staff use them to identify ways to enhance the quality of care they provide their residents.
Acute care hospitals use them when making referrals.
Patients and their families consider them when deciding which facility best fits their needs. Regulators use them to determine a nursing home’s eligibility for certificates of need which help facilitate renovations and expansions.
Insurers use them when determining which organizations to include in their service networks.

Given how crucial the rating has become, what can nursing home or skilled nursing facility (SNF) administrators do to efficiently improve their facility’s nursing home star rating on Nursing Home Compare?
