Improving the NQF Failure to Rescue Metric

Led by scholars in nursing and health services research and informatics, the goal of this interdisciplinary team was to refine one of the most controversial measures of nursing-sensitive quality of care: failure to rescue. Refinement of this measure is expected to result in a measure of the quality of nursing care that is more likely to be used for quality improvement, public accountability, and pay for performance.
