This paper reviews some results from a large scale longitudinal and cross national study of nursing home regulation. The Australian system of standards monitoring was designed to be heavily outcome oriented and resident focused. The outcome orientation of the approach is critically appraised, with particular attention to the broadly defined nature of the standards, their subjectivity, and the validity and reliability of the regulation process.
