    • Staff Turnover: The percent of nursing staff and number of administrators that stopped working at the nursing home over a 12-month period.

This information will be added to the Care Compare website in January 2022 and used in the Nursing Home Five Star Quality Rating System in July 2022.

  • Posting Detailed Staffing Data: CMS will begin posting the submitted employee-level staffing data for all nursing homes.
