Assessing and Improving Nursing Home Quality of Care


Reports of poor nursing home quality abound in the media, yet simple measurement tools that could be used to gauge and report the quality of these facilities are lacking. This Picker Program Grant will analyze the relationship between nursing home and resident characteristics and indicators of quality of care, and will begin to produce easily understood aggregate measures of quality of care. Information will be disseminated to federal policymakers, state officials, and ombudsmen.
