Hospital Administration Perspective
Pediatric patients have unique characteristics that place them at high risk for adverse events. Together with family advisory networks and hospital associations, NPRQI provides tools to monitor the processes that can lead to adverse events. NPRQI is one step to becoming a Pediatric Recognized Facility by your state, which lets the community know of your organization meeting pediatric quality standards.
