This session will review discharge to community, hospital readmissions, and emergency room visit quality measures that impact the Quality Measure component of the Nursing Home Compare Five-Star Quality Rating system. During the session, we will review how these measures are calculated and how they impact your overall Five-Star Quality Rating. The session will focus on best practices for decreasing unplanned discharges, emergency room visits, and return to hospital visits in short-term stay residents and improve your quality measures using a QAPI framework with emphasis on reduction of common MDS coding errors and implementation of a facility specific Five Star road map action plan. Sample tools will be shared for driving and sustaining Five Star Quality.
