SNF Operators – Know Your PBJ Staffing Star Ratings… before they post
What would it mean to your organization if you could watch the trend of your CMS PBJ staffing star ratings … daily?
Payroll-Based Journal (PBJ) is the report used by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to evaluate levels of staffing in a skilled nursing facility as it relates to quality measures. To determine the quarterly PBJ staffing star rating, the intricate formula calculates RN and overall staffing against census and complexity of the patients.
The formula, while intricate, can be a useful tool for SNF operators who wish to make a positive impact on their quarterly ratings. However, doing the calculations manually would be an onerous task. Filling out the quarterly report for CMS based on time clock data is complex enough without trying to manually figure the calculations.
At Prone 2 Dream, we believe there’s a better way – a prospective approach. By viewing timeclock data and census together on a daily basis, a SNF operator and their Director of Nursing can make evidence-based decisions when scheduling.
