The commission was created in 1999. It is comprised of 13 members who work closely with reviewing policies and laws to implement changes/improvements for Delaware nursing home residents.
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.
