Defining Direct Care CMS defines direct care staff as those individuals who, through interpersonal contact with residents or resident care management, provide care and services to allow residents to attain or maintain the highest practicable physical, mental, and psychosocial wellbeing. Direct care does not include individuals whose primary duty is maintaining the physical environment of the long-term care facility (for example, housekeeping). Tip #12: Collecting Contractor Hours What providers are doing Contact agency & contractors to provide this data for upload Manually collect and enter into CMS
Utilize systems to allow these caregivers to easily check-in and check-out Tip #13: Reporting Boomerang Staff Issue with reporting rehires CMS only allows for one hire and one termination field per submission This creates errors or lost data if those staff are part of the same submission What providers are doing Submit separate files for rehired staff
Submit PBJ reports more frequently to reduce odds of rehires overriding Tip #14: Addressing The Day Divide Issue reporting shifts spanning 2 days Communities must report hours to the actual days worked. Most systems are not set-up to automatically report in accordance to these requirements What providers are doing Change shifts to start at midnight Manually adjust and enter to meet regulations
Contract with vendors that can automatically allocate these hours Tip #15: Trash Manual Schedules & Adopt Technology Predict and prevent overtime Automate scheduling & labor management Staff to resident need, service levels Gain visibility into staffing across properties Fill open shifts fast Get Payroll-Based Journal Reporting right
