At the provincial level, we report on 11 indicators related to the quality of our long-term care system: wait times, incontinence, activities of daily living, cognitive function, pain, falls, pressure ulcers, restraint use, medication safety, health human resources and infection rates.
For individual long-term care homes, we report on four indicators: falls, incontinence, pressure ulcers and restraint use, which are measured against benchmarks — markers of excellence to which organizations can aspire. Health Quality Ontario used an evidence-informed process and expert panel to set these benchmarks. For more information on benchmarks, visit our Resources for Long-Term Care Homes webpage.
