A Scale Of Quality
The dimension of scale can be used in multiple ways. It can indicate a commitment toward excellence and toward continuous improvement. Scale can indicate a belief that assessment methodologies can, or should be able to, distinguish gradations of quality. Scalar terminology can be used in a definition to distinguish superior quality care from minimal levels of acceptable care, a distinction relevant to the different objectives of internal quality assurance systems and external regulatory efforts. A definition without a scale dimension could imply that quality is a level of care only above the unacceptable (disquality) and that no distinction can (or should) be made between high, middle, or low quality.
