CMS will begin posting the following information for each nursing home on the Medicare.gov Care Compare website. Highlights:
- Weekend Staffing: The level of total nurse and registered nurse (RN) staffing on weekends provided by each nursing home over a quarter.
- Staff Turnover: The percent of nursing staff and number of administrators that stopped working at the nursing home over a 12-month period. This information will be added to the Care Compare website in January 2022 and used in the Nursing Home Five Star Quality Rating System in July 2022.
- Posting Detailed Staffing Data: CMS will begin posting the submitted employee-level staffing data for all nursing homes.
- Reminder for Nursing Homes to Link Employee Identifiers when they are changed due to the changes in the facility’s staffing data systems.
