According to a report by the Alliance for Quality Nursing Home Care and the American Health Care Association, America’s nursing home facilities have increased quality of care in the past few years. Since 2009, facilities have accomplished measurable improvements in nine out of ten quality measures which positively affect the quality of care and life of the nearly 2.5 million people who receive nursing home care a year. Independent researchers used government measured data to analyze the “capabilities of skilled nursing facilities, trends in skilled nursing care and the need for quality measures to effectively evaluate rehabilitation outcomes among an increasingly diverse patient population.” They found that nursing facilities have improved in their short term care, including patient delirium, pain and pressure ulcers, as well as their long term care including daily living, high-risk pressure ulcers, resident mobility and pain.
