Have you been discussing the April 2019 Five-Star Rating System changes with your director of nursing and administrator? We all need to be prepared for the very real possibility of losing stars. With the April 2019 revision of the Five-Star Technical User’s Manual, we learned there will be changes to all three Five-Star domains. In this 60-minute webinar, we cover some of the significant changes that facilities need to be aware of, including the “unfreezing” of the survey ratings, the threshold adjustments to the staffing domain, the separate weighting and thresholds for the short- and long-stay quality measures, and the new and retired measures. Watch to gain a better understanding of what you need to know and how to prepare as these Five-Star changes take effect.
Following this webinar, you will be able to:
Describe the changes in each of the domains impacting the Five-Star rating
Delineate the calculation of the overall Five-Star rating
Discuss strategies for managing your facility's Five-Star rating
