Abstract

In this article, the authors report on the development and testing of a set of indicators of quality of care in nursing homes, using resident-level assessment data. These quality indicators (QIs) have been developed to provide a foundation for both external and internal quality-assurance (QA) and quality-improvement activities. The authors describe the development of the QIs, discuss their nature and characteristics, address the development of a QI-based quality-monitoring system (QMS), report on a pilot test of the QIs and the system, comment on methodological and current QI validation efforts, and conclude by raising further research and development issues.
