The shared documents are a Five-Star Rating Update of how our facilities are scored in the Five-Star Rating system.

The first document called “ Five-Star Quality Rating State- Level Cut Point Table” shares information on each state and where the percentile cuts are for each of the 5 stars.  Note that each state is only allowed a certain percent of five-star facilities.

The second document is a spread sheet.  It shows each facility in each state, the staffing hours that were reported, and how they are adjusted.

This is information is interesting and sometimes gets buried in our emails.  We wanted you to have one-click access to this information if you find it interesting or helpful.
