CMS Begins Enforcement of Nursing Home Vaccination Rate Reports

CMS announced in May that long term care facilities were required to report weekly COVID-19 vaccination rates for residents and staff. Enforcement of the rule began Monday, June 14 with fines increasing for each week of non-compliance. Data from CMS has been released through May 30, and only Vermont, California, and Hawaii had met the American Health Care Association’s goal of vaccinating at least 75% of staff.
