SCRUGs

SCRUGs

Scottish Care Resource Utilisation Groups. An acronym for groups of dependancy and care needs of patients in private nursing homes and residential care, which were originally stratified into 5 groups, based on analysis of data from 18 Scottish Local Authority. A revised algorithm increased the original 5 groups to 8, providing greater discrimination in use of staff resources.
