Introd­uction

The nursing home quality measures come from resident assessment data that nursing homes routinely collect on the residents at specified intervals during their stay. These measures assess the resident's physical and clinical conditions and abilities, as well as prefer­ences and life care wishes. These assessment data have been converted to develop quality measures that give consumers another source of inform­ation that shows how well nursing homes are caring for their resident's physical and clinical needs.

Intended Purpose

To give you inform­ation about the quality of care at nursing homes in order to help you choose a nursing home for yourself or others
To give you inform­ation about the care at nursing homes where you or family members already live
To give you inform­ation to facilitate your discus­sions with the nursing home staff regarding the quality of care; and
To give data to the nursing home to help them in their quality improv­ement efforts.
