Increase Expected in Nursing Home Staffing Surveys and Other Recent News

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has announced that it will use payroll-based journal (PBJ) data to identify nursing homes that have several days in a quarter without a registered nurse (RN) on site, or have a significant decline in staff on the weekends.  The States will be required to inspect such facilities and cite any non-compliance resulting from such surveys.
