Changes to CMS' Five-Star Ratings System Turn Up the Heat on Nursing Homes and Increase Risks for Psychotropic Use

Wednesday, May 6, 2015

12:00 PM- 1:15 PM (Central)

On Feb. 20, 2015, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS) unveiled Version 3.0 of its Nursing Home Compare, which updates the current 5-Star Quality Rating System to reflect higher performance standards. Because of these changes, not only will it will be increasingly difficult for nursing homes to earn the much-desired four-star and five-star ratings, but also the ratings for many nursing homes may immediately fall by one or more stars.
