Targeted 5-Star Work Plans
Proactive consultants can develop a facility specific Five-Star Road Map and assist in driving continual improvement in QMs, Health Inspections and Staffing.

Braun’s Nursing Home has been a client of Proactive LTC Consulting for several years. During this time, they have provided us with friendly, knowledgeable, and conscientious nurse consultants. Their guidance and recommendations have helped us maintain our 5-Star Quality Measures rating, successfully pass a Myers and Stauffer Audit, and continuously kept us in compliance with the ever-changing regulations and requirements of the long-term care industry. I highly recommend Proactive LTC Consulting as an additional member of your healthcare team.
Our facility does not have a corporate office to engage for training purposes. Proactive Consultants have worked with us in the areas of Quality Measures, survey expectations, and day to day clinical operations. The engagement resulted in the identification of facility system barriers and insight into improving processes for the best resident care outcomes. We have seen significant and consistent improvement in our QMs through the five star action plan since working with Proactive. Proactive Consultants are personable and professional, and have made the Nursing Director feel positive about her future success as our Nursing leader. Thank you Proactive for investing in developing our nursing leaders and improving the overall operations of this facility.
