2013 Quality Pool Revision

Nancy Leveille in Clinical & Quality

The DOH notified us today that a coding error has been discovered in the programming of the Percent of Long Stay Residents Experiencing One or More Falls with Major Injury measure of the NH QI. They have corrected the error and have re-issued the quintile ranking. This will positively affect 15 SNF and their quintile ranking. Those facilities whose scores would have been negatively affected by this error, will not be adjusted and their rating will remain the same for this period. See attached DAL for full information.
