CMS: Turnover, weekend staffing levels now in Five-Star ratings

Nursing home staff turnover rates and weekend staffing levels are now being incorporated into providers’ Five-Star Ratings.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services on Thursday announced that Care Compare’s July 2022 refresh includes the revision into the methodology for calculating staffing star ratings. It also is being less generous with star upgrades for some facilities.

CMS first announced in January that it would begin posting facility turnover and weekends staffing data to Care Compare, and that the information would be included into the Five-Star rating system by July.

The new rating is based on six separate staffing measures and assigns points based on how well providers perform on each.
