A comprehensive report prepared under contract to CMS by ABT Associates summarizes results from a Nursing Home Staffing Study including research activities between May and December of 2022.  The report presents options for minimum nurse staffing requirements for consideration by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to prepare a minimum staffing regulation.

This study was posted in error by CMS, and discovered by KFF Health News and offers a rare insight into the deliberations and considerations used by CMS in constructing Rules of Participation.  Due to the controversial nature of a minimum staffing rule, the industry and advocates interpreted the findings in this report in various ways.
