Reducing acute care hospitalizations from nursing homes is a patient safety priority. This cluster-randomized controlled trial compared a multimodal quality improvement intervention at long-term care facilities and found no difference in the rate of acute care hospitalizations compared to usual nursing home care. These results emphasize the challenge of improving safety outcomes in real-world clinical settings.
