Inpatient rehabilitation facility, long-term care hospital websites updated

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has added several new quality measures to public reporting websites for inpatient rehabilitation facilities and long-term care hospitals, including:

  • Percent of Residents or Patients Who Were Assessed and Appropriately Given the Seasonal Influenza Vaccination (National Quality Forum #0680) – Note: the agency suppressed this measure for long-term care hospitals due to an error in measure calculation.
  • Influenza Vaccination Among Healthcare Personnel (National Quality Forum #0431)
  • National Healthcare Safety Network Facility-wide Inpatient Hospital-onset Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus Bacteremia Outcome Measure (National Quality Forum #1716)
  • National Healthcare Safety Network Facility-wide Inpatient Hospital-onset Clostridium difficile Infection Outcome Measure (National Quality Forum #1717)
