Past Nursing Home Quality Improvement Projects

Three professional women pose with a sign that reads 'Engaging Staff in Quality: Improving Staff Onboarding.'

As part of Ohio's nursing home quality initiative, each licensed nursing home in the state must participate every two years in at least one quality improvement project approved by the Ohio Department of Aging.

The projects have completed, but are offered here for reference purposes. Links contained in the program descriptions may have expired or are no longer available.
