Piloting nursing-sensitive hospital care measures in Massachusetts.


Under the umbrella of the Massachusetts Hospital Association and Massachusetts Organization of Nurse Executives Patients First Initiative, Massachusetts hospitals tested a subset of NQF-endorsed nursing-sensitive care measures in 2006. In this report, we describe the pilot test, report on pilot test measure data, summarize participant feedback on the tested measures, and offer observations on lessons learned from the pilot test.
