Capstone Papers-Quality of Health Care in America
Select at least two hospitals or long-term care facilities in your own region. Identify and describe the facilities that you selected, including: the type of facility, the locations, the size (number of beds), the facilities’ affiliation (independent or part of a health system), and the facilities’ area of specialty (if any).
Select four indicators (also known as “measures”) from one or more of the websites provided in the Learning Resources that pertain to the facilities you selected above. Define those four indicators (for example: pressure sores or bed sores acquired in the hospital). Compare and contrast those indicators for the facilities you have selected.
Make an argument for the facility you would choose, if you or a family member needed care from a facility. Be sure to clearly explain the reasons for your choice.
