Quality in Long Term Care
• The perception of the American public of the
quality of care and quality of life in a “nursing
home” is extremely poor.
• The vast majority of Americans do not want to
go to a “nursing home”.
• They believe they are places we go to die and
lose our independence and dignity.
What is the public perception?
• 95 % Question
• Do you want to go to a nursing home?
Implications of Quality Perception:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Guilt and Fear of individuals and families
Demand for Quality Improvement
Regulatory Reaction – More is Better
Poor regulatory compliance – More Surveyors
Media Coverage of poor compliance
Poor compliance – litigation opportunities
