a Low-risk residents are active, can change positions, and are getting the nutrients they need to maintain good skin health. Short-stay residents stay fewer than 30 days in a nursing home, typically following an acute care hospitalization.

b Long-stay residents typically enter a nursing facility because they are no longer able to care for themselves at home. They tend to stay in the facility for several months or years.

c Data reflect care for the third quarter of each calendar year.
