"An appropriate instrument for measuring the quality of care"
The National Prevalence Measurement of Quality of Care (the LPZ) is an annual, independent measurement of care quality in the healthcare sector. The LPZ is used to measure the quality of care provided by your institution. It is a reliable measuring instrument for identifying and rectifying care problems at an early stage. Care indicators that can be measured with the LPZ are: pressure ulcer, incontinence, malnutrition, falls, restraints, and pain.
The LPZ presents your organisation with targeted improvements to the quality of care. Results of your own measurements can be compared in a simple manner: between locations/departments within your own organisation, and with national care institutions.
Currently, the LPZ is being measured in several countries, such as the Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria, the United Kingdom and Turkey. You can find detailed information about the participating countries, by clicking in the menu at the bottom of this page.
