Assessment of nursing home reporting of major injury falls for quality measurement on Nursing Home Compare.
The purpose of this study was to assess the accuracy of nursing home self-report of major injury falls on the Minimum Data Set (MDS). They linked inpatient claims for major injury falls with MDS assessments. The investigators concluded that the nursing home-reported data used for the Nursing Home Compare (NHC) falls measure may be highly inaccurate.
