Abstract

Over the last decade, researchers in the United States (US) have been developing and applying nursing home quality indicators (QIs), which have been used widely for nursing home regulation, quality improvement, and public reporting. Although QIs have been critiqued, insufficient attention has been directed towards applying them to nursing home residents with Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia. We discuss the reliability and validity of the QIs for nursing home residents with dementia; cognitive impairment as a QI or risk factor for other QIs; clinical interventions and quality improvement for residents with dementia; and public QI reporting systems for family members or caregivers of nursing home residents with dementia.
