What Are Payroll-Based Journals?

What Are Payroll-Based Journals?

Affectionately called the “peanut butter and jelly” requirement or “PBJ,” payroll-based journal will achieve several goals:

  1. Allow the CMS to collect more regular and more frequent data from nursing homes
  2. Ensure accuracy of data by providing an auditable method of data collection

  3. Standardize data collection

Inspect the quality of care delivered at nursing homes by using data such as:

  1. The level of staff in each nursing home
  2. Nursing home employee turnover and tenure
  3. Census data

Affected employers will need to file staffing and census data within 45 days of the close of each fiscal year.
