Abstract:
Abstract presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: After the 2000 publication of To Err is Human by the Institute of Medicine, health care regulatory bodies, payors, and business groups have implemented a number of initiatives to improve the quality of healthcare in the United States while maintaining or reducing healthcare costs. Health care quality indicators have been developed and used to assess quality of care for the purposes of quality improvement, public reporting, and establishing reimbursement rates. With foresight, the American Nurses Association established the National Database of Nursing Quality Indicators, (NDNQI) in 1998. Today, with one third if the hospitals in the U.S. submitting data, NDNQI is the nation's largest nursing quality database. Nursing indicators reflect the structure, processes, and outcomes of nursing care. Participating hospitals receive unit level reports that are used by hospitals for quality improvement and improvement in the nursing work environment. Monitoring nursing quality is both a requirement of the American Nursing Credentialing Center's Magnet Recognition program, and used by the Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services in establishing Medicare reimbursement rates.
