PBJ questions, answered

Payroll-based journal (PBJ) has released data that mainstream media is picking up…The following are some of those expert answers to some questions members asked that I thought I’d share with you.

If a facility is penalized for an erroneous PBJ, for how long would their star rating be reduced before it can be updated again?  We want to be mindful that PBJ data is only submitted on a quarterly basis. So if your facility has been penalized and your star rating has been effected, that rating is going to stay in place for a whole quarter.
