5 Star Nursing Home
Targeted 5-Star Work Plans
Proactive consultants can develop a facility specific Five-Star Road Map and assist in driving continual improvement in QMs, Health Inspections and Staffing. Many clients opt for an ongoing annual partnership plan with an established allotment of onsite and offsite support hours allocated to assist in obtaining or maintaining Five-Star status.
Health Inspection Survey
Proactive specializes in survey preparedness through strategic partnerships that include Mock Surveys targeting identification of potential areas at risk of health inspection deficiencies. Consultation is available to assist with development and implementation of plans of correction, directed plans of correction QA monitoring, care plan audits, nurse administration support, and staff training.
Quality Measure Improvement
Proactive assists in the assessment of clinical program performance and partner with your clinical team to achieve measurable care excellence in QM areas. Proactive understands the challenges of achieving and maintaining Five-Star Quality Measures. Our clinical consultants work alongside your team to drive coding accuracy, systems improvements, and staff engagement. We provide the boots on the ground assistance, real-time support, and practical resources to propel QM outcomes.
PBJ (Payroll-Based Journal) Accuracy
Our Five-Star experts assist in the assessment of PBJ reporting accuracy and partner with your leadership team to support effective staffing plans.
Our facility does not have a corporate office to engage for training purposes. Proactive Consultants have worked with us in the areas of Quality Measures, survey expectations, and day to day clinical operations. The engagement resulted in the identification of facility system barriers and insight into improving processes for the best resident care outcomes. We have seen significant and consistent improvement in our QMs through the five star action plan since working with Proactive. Proactive Consultants are personable and professional, and have made the Nursing Director feel positive about her future success as our Nursing leader. Thank you Proactive for investing in developing our nursing leaders and improving the overall operations of this facility.
