A high number indicates a higher percentage of residents who had a newly occurring stage 2 to 4 pressure ulcer on their target assessment; thus a lower percentage is desirable.

Description:
Residents with valid assessments

Inclusions:

  1. Residents with valid assessments. To be considered valid, the target assessment must
    1. Be the latest assessment in the quarter
    2. Be carried out more than 92 days after the Admission Date
    3. Not be an Admission Full Assessment


As this is an incidence indicator, the resident must also have had an assessment in the previous quarter, with 45 to 165 days between the target and prior assessments. If multiple assessments in the previous quarter meet the time period criteria, the latest assessment is selected as the prior assessment.

Exclusions:

  1. Residents who had a pressure ulcer greater than or equal to stage 2 (M2a = 2 or higher) on their prior assessment

    <tr><td>Rationale</td><td>
    
    CCRS quality indicators were developed by interRAI (www.interrai.org), an international research network, to provide organizations with measures of quality across key domains, including physical and cognitive function, safety and quality of life. Each indicator is adjusted for resident characteristics that are related to the outcome and independent of quality of care. The indicators can be used by quality leaders to drive continuous improvement efforts. They are also used to communicate with key stakeholders through report cards and accountability agreements.

<tr><td>Caveats and Limitations</td><td>

This measure uses data collected by long-term care facilities using the Resident Assessment Instrument–Minimum Data Set 2.0 (RAI-MDS 2.0) and submitted to the Continuing Care Reporting System (CCRS). Users should be cautious when interpreting results from CCRS because the CCRS frame does not currently contain all facilities in all provinces and territories that make up the CCRS population of interest; thus the population covered by CCRS may not be representative of all continuing care facilities across Canada.

Some jurisdictions have implemented or are in the process of implementing the new interRAI Long-Term Care Facilities (LTCF), the next-generation clinical assessment instrument for long-term care. Data collected using this assessment instrument will be submitted to the Integrated interRAI Reporting System (IRRS). Results for these jurisdictions as of the fiscal year of interRAI LTCF implementation are not available at this time. Historical results based on the RAI-MDS 2.0 are available.

Coverage is incomplete for some fiscal years in the following jurisdictions:


Indicators are risk-adjusted to control for potential confounding factors.

</td></tr>


<tr><td>Trending Issues</td><td>

Since 2003, the number of facilities and jurisdictions submitting to CCRS has been increasing. With the addition of new jurisdictions, it is possible that differences in care practices may affect indicator rates; however, changes to the underlying population would be controlled for using risk adjustment. There is also evidence to suggest that trending and use of data from the entire time series is not an issue and that data quality is consistent over time (Hirdes et al., 2013).

</td></tr>


<tr><td>Comments</td><td>

The CCRS quality indicators use four rolling quarters of data for calculations in order to have a sufficient number of assessments for risk adjustment. Since residents are assessed on a quarterly basis, each resident can contribute to the indicator up to four times.

Although the CCRS quality indicators are reported publicly at the provincial/territorial level only, indicator results are available at other levels (facility, corporation, region) to data submitters in the CCRS eReports application. Data in CCRS eReports is updated on a quarterly basis.
