Session 36 | PBJ: Fine-tuning Your Five Star Rating for Success

Session Summary

Fine-tuning your Payroll-Based Journal (PBJ) can set you up for Five Star rating success. Learn how CMS is sharing your PBJ data with the public and state surveyors, and how that data is being used. By understanding how PBJ determines your staffing Five Star rating, you can take proactive action to manage your RN and staffing levels, tighten up MDS steps that affect staffing ratings, and prepare for potential audits, state survey inquiries and/or public scrutiny.
