What time periods are reflected in the current 5-Star Rating that was updated Jan. 2021?



The Jan. 2021 refresh includes data for the following:

Health Inspections – Your current health inspection rating includes data from your last 3 recertification surveys and deficiency findings from complaint inspections and focused infection control surveys conducted in the past 3 years, which now includes surveys that occurred after March 3, 2020.

Staffing – Your staffing rating reflects data submitted in the Payroll Based Journal (PBJ) system for the July 1 – Sept 30, 2020 quarter that was submitted by the Nov. 14, 2020 deadline.

Quality Measures– Your quality measure rating reflects data for July 2019- June 2020 for all of the measures that were updated. The two QMs that are part of the Skilled Nursing Facility Quality Reporting Program (Percentage of SNF residents with pressure ulcers/pressure injuries that are new or worsened and Rate of successful return to home and community from a SNF) were not be updated in January 2021.
