LMI In Your Corner: Member Benefits & Resources

This section is designed to highlight important member benefits, events, and programs that could benefit your organization! We want you to get the most out of  your membership. Please take time to read through this content, and contact our office with any questions. 


Updated Theo's Book!
April 26, 2019

We have updated Theo’s Book with the latest CMS changes to Appendix Z and added an updated link to Appendix Q! The new file is uploaded to our website, and we encourage you to download the latest version. The download process will be exactly the same; you will go to this link, fill out your name and information, and then download the updated Version Two! 

For those unfamiliar with Theo’s Book, it is an electronic version of the expanded CMS Guidance to Surveyors for Long Term Care Facilities, integrated with the federal code requirements, that LMI created for our SNF members to help them navigate the many CMS rules and regulations. It is a member-only benefit that can be downloaded to your computer, tablet or mobile device and can be searched, highlighted, annotated and bookmarked. As a member benefit, we ask that you do not share or distribute this information with those outside your organization. 

We hope that this resource will continue to be useful to your organizations! It is our goal to provide easy and quick access to materials needed through each new regulatory implementation.

Quarterly 5-Star Trending Reports
February 15, 2019

On a quarterly basis as a member benefit, LeadingAge Michigan disseminates two data rich reports which Nursing Home members can assist with marketing their services to prospective referral sources and managed care contractors as well as with their Quality Assessment Process Improvement initiatives.

The 5-Star Analysis Report helps SNF members understand how their 5-star ratings are calculated and highlights where they could gain or lose points. It includes information on the past three health inspections, staffing, and quality measure ratings. An interactive staffing template allows providers to input current RUGS III data and reported staffing hours to calculate “what-if” scenarios that assess the impact of changes to resident case mix and/or staffing hours on staffing ratings.

The Quality Measure Trending report is a time series analysis displaying each of the 24 QMs and compares your rate to county, state, and national rates.

The January report has been sent as of last week. For questions about your facility's report, please contact Laura Funsch at


Need Your CEU's?
February 1, 2019

In light of the number of random licensure CEU audits taking place, we wanted to let you know of a member benefit that some of you are already familiar with! With your LeadingAge Michigan online account, you are able to access all of your CEU certificates from classes that date back to 2013. An exception to this would be credits you received during an Annual Conference or Leadership Institute. We generate those “in house,” so feel free to call or email our offices if those certificates are needed as well.

To access your CEU certificates, go to our homepage at You will be prompted on the top right-hand corner to log in. Once you have logged in, go to “Manage Profile” on the top. Under the section of your profile entitled “Content & Features,” there is a section called Professional Development. Click there to view all LeadingAge Michigan education that you have attended!

Please note that if you have not taken an online survey for every event, your CEU certificate will not show up in your profile. For a detailed guide to obtaining your CEUs, click here.
