Nursing Homes Quality Assurance (Report to Congress), Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services:"In 1996, about 1.6 million people received care in approximately 16,800 nursing homes across the United States. As the largest single payer for this care, the Federal government is responsible for ensuring: (1) that the health and safety of one of the nation's most vulnerable populations are protected; and (2) that expenditures are prudent. Nursing home care has improved compared to the poor conditions dramatized in scandals during the 1950s and 1960s. In spite of this improvement, some experts and the public continue to feel that the typical nursing home is terrible. Ongoing press reports of questionable practices reinforce a widespread negative perception of the quality of nursing home care and underscore the importance of the Federal government's responsibilities."

Medical-Legal Issues In Quality Assurance, 'Lectric Law Library:"Quality assurance is defined as an evaluation of the conditions under which care is provided. Quality assurance, which is also known as "quality improvement" or "quality assessment" may be applied in the hospital, in the medical office setting, at a health maintenance organization (HMO) or at a preferred provided organization (PPO). Quality assurance involves the identification of a problem, the determination of the source and nature of the problem, an assessment on how to effect improvement in the situation, the design of policies for remedying the problem through appropriate methods, and implementation of those policies and monitoring of the methods applied to see if they have been effective. Quality assurance monitoring of policy may be done on a individual case-by-case basis or system-wide."
