Sixty percent of nursing home adverse events – including pressure ulcers, medication errors, falls and infections – are deemed preventable and it’s estimated that one in five nursing home residents suffers preventable harm.
The Telligen QIN-QIO works with nursing homes to help them achieve their goal of providing high-quality, person-centered care.
