Nursing Home Staffing

This important topic was not a DignityMA Study Session, but this post attempts to be a compilation of current information on the topic. CMS has released a Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM) that would implement a minimum staffing standard in nursing homes.

DignityMA is following this top closely, and will continue to provide opinions.

DignityMA members attended a webinar by the Consumer Voice on unpacking CMS’s Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM) The webinar walked through the rule and its provisions. Additionally, the rule relies heavily on a staffing study conducted last year. Consumer Voice explains this study and how CMS used it to come to the proposed standard in the rule. This webinar is the first step in a series of events that will provide you with the information necessary to comment and make this rule stronger. View slides from the Consumer Voice Webinar.
