Summary
This memorandum provides specific details on the scoring methodology used to identify those nursing homes that become candidates for the SFF initiative by virtue of their more serious history of severe and persistent quality of care problems. We explain the method for scoring nursing home deficiency findings and survey results. The SFF methodology produces a score for identifying those facilities that merit closer survey attention through the SFF initiative.
