NYS Nursing Home Quality Pool

Nancy Leveille and Karen Morris in Clinical & Quality

The NYSDOH sent out a DAL last week on the 2013 Nursing Home Quality Pool.  Included in the DAL are quality measures, compliance elements and the unnecessary hospitalization measure that will be included in the 2013 pool and their respective weights for the overall pool calculation.

NYSHFA has worked closely with DOH to advocate for a balanced process; recognizing regional differences on specific measures/compliance elements; and the ability to recognize the best of best and the most improved facilities during the time period.
