Quality Improvement in Nursing Homes


Nursing homes with clinical consultation from advanced practice nurses show significantly higher levels of quality than nursing homes without clinical consultants. This administrative guideline is based on the premise that nursing homes use or will use a clinical consultant to enhance their quality of care and their quality improvement program.


The purpose of this evidence-based administrative guideline is to provide quality improvement knowledge and strategies for nursing homes. Nursing homes, including all departments, i.e. administration, nursing, social services, dietary, activities, housekeeping, laundry, finance, maintenance, and any other departments, can use this administrative guideline as a team to develop, define, implement, and evaluate their own quality improvement program. Interdisciplinary collaboration is part of a good quality improvement program and needs to incorporate not only nursing home providers but also patients and their families. Written 2003; Revised 2012.
