Delaware Nursing Home Residents Quality Assurance Commission


The commission was created in 1999. It is comprised of 12 members who work closely with reviewing policies and laws to implement changes/improvements for Delaware nursing home residents.

Commission Members


DNHRQAC’s mission is to monitor Delaware’s quality assurance system for nursing home residents in both privately operated and state operated facilities so that complaints of abuse, neglect mistreatment, financial exploitation and other complaints are responded to in a timely manner so as to ensure the health and safety of nursing home residents.

Key Objectives:

  • Examine the policies and procedures and evaluate the effectiveness of the quality assurance system for nursing home residents.
  • Monitor data and analyze trends in the quality of care and life of individuals receiving long-term care in Delaware.
  • Review and make recommendations to the Governor, Secretary of the Department of Health and Social Services and General Assembly concerning the quality assurance system and improvements to the overall quality of life and care of nursing home residents.
