The QAPI report can generate a percentage of patients with pressure wounds when you enter the number of patient days – "census days" – for the time range. Census days = the sum of patients every day in the facility during all the days covered by the report. For example, if the report is for only three days, the Census Days = Day 1 (81 patients) + Day 2 (80 patients) + Day 3 (83 patients) = 244.
Must I calculate Census Days to generate a QAPI report?
No. The percentage of patients with pressure wounds is an option on the QAPI report. If you do not fill in the Census Days, the report will run normally, but will not print the percentage.
