Nursing Home Five Star Rating Changes

Nursing Home Five Star Rating Changes

With the July 2022 Care Compare refresh, CMS revised the Nursing Home Five Star Quality Rating System to include weekend staffing and staff turnover measures. To emphasize the importance of staffing, CMS will no longer add a star to the overall rating of facilities that have a four-star staffing rating, only those that have a five-star staffing rating will receive the one-star add-on to their overall rating. Visit the links below for more information.
