CMS provides updated versions of the Nursing Home Staff Competency Assessment

CMS recently released updated versions of the Nursing Home Staff Competency Assessment, and they are now available to download for free on CMPRP's website. Download the assessment by visiting Civil Money Penalty Reinvestment Program website.  

Save the documents to your desktop in order to use all functions of the documents, and make sure you have Adobe Acrobat installed on your computer. If you do not have Adobe Acrobat, download it for free on the Adobe website.

The package of these materials is called "Building on a Culture of Quality: Your Guide to Resident-Centered Care." CMPRP will provide additional resources to facilities over the next few months to support you with improving staff performance, tracking key staff measures, and sharing information and materials that can help you and your staff continue to grow.   

  • Nursing Home Employee Satisfaction Survey: Coming soon, this management workforce assessment focuses on staff satisfaction and the impact on turnover, recruitment and productivity, management and leadership training, as well as engagement and team building.
  • Guide to Improving Nursing Home Employee Satisfaction: Coming soon, this tool will connect facilities to evidence-based resources to help the facility address opportunities for improvement identified through the use of the employee satisfaction survey. 

The CMPRP tools and resources are not mandatory and using these tools does not guarantee compliance with Medicare and Medicaid participation requirements. The use of the tools is meant to assist facilities in building on a culture of quality.
