Nursing Home Staff Turnover and Weekend Staffing Levels
CMS will begin posting the following information for each nursing home on the Medicare.gov Care Compare website: • 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.
