Promoting quality care in the nursing home


Journal Article (Review)

Substantial improvements in the quality of care provided in nursing facilities must be achieved to meet the needs of a growing older adult population. The nursing home industry must leave its historical roots and embrace systematic changes that will promote quality. The process is likely to involve a strong emphasis on continuous quality improvement based on established quality indicators. However, many issues will not be fully addressed by this methodology. Continued development, innovation, and collaboration are necessary to fully address the issues that influence quality.
